Verstappen was actually on a hotlap already under that time when the red flag came out.
Yeah, so was Bottas.
If Charles keeps pole, it’s going to get spicy between him and Max tomorrow.
Unless Max is content to cruise around in 2nd pick up 18 points. If Hamilton gets to 5th, Max will still take 8 points out of Hamilton’s lead, or 7 if Hamilton gets fastest lap.
If Hamilton and Bottas stay out of trouble, Merc will pick up some points over RB in the WCC tomorrow.
And I think Sainz too right?
Yes, the start will be incredibly tense. Bottas is behind Leclerc. So even if Max does not attack he has to slot in and that opens him for attack by Bottas. If he does attack (it is possible he gets a good launch) then he is vulnerable to a hard defence and indeed a Bottas right behind charles.
With Charles in the lead he will bunch everybody up. That takes away the undercut potential and will make Max loose his tires, being in the drag. Max cannot push him, like lewis was pushing max in spain, as there is no viable overtake window.
Pit stop will be tense moment 2. But let’s see. Race is yet to start.
