It's the first time I see Mclaren having a suspension that melted.

Definitely an unexpected situation... Sainz made the move on Romain and now is chasing Giovinazzi to get in the top 10... Let’s go!

Sainz has to get as many points as possible. We need to keep as many points difference as possible.

Sainz finally picking up the pace and lapping in the low 1.17’s... It was surprising that he was just matching Giovanazzi’s lap times

I’m afraid that more than 9th in this race will be too much too ask for... There is a chance to make the move on GIO and Stroll... But, the pace isn’t there to challenge Renault or RBR

A lot will depend whether he needs to pit once more. If he doesn't, he's ahead of them and effectively P9, if he does then he is P11 or even worse.

Not really, he's trying to get those tyres to last to the end without another stop, he's gotta do pretty much an entire race on them.

I dont its easy for a suspension to melt. maybe Norris went over curbs many times and that caused the failure. Anyway, I dont think its possible for Sainz to go until the end. Maybe yesterday they should have tried a second lap with mediums and invest to a 1 pit stop strategy.

edit: Hulkenberg might have a gearbox problem
