Hamilton may pit for fastest lap if he can get a gap from strohl
The gap is there but Mercedes strategy are having a shocker so they will probably do nothing and lose out on the extra point
Although with the problem Bottas had, is it worth the risk ?

It's faster getting past blue flags then someone you need to pass. And at that point they weren't getting close to lapping Haas
Passing is next to impossible here, yes. But how long would have the others around Hamilton stayed out if Hamilton himself wouldn't have boxed that early? Remember, they have different priorities. Potentially blocking Verstappen if he would stop is not on their list. They reacted to their direct opponent and that was all there is to it.
They probably should have done the dirty. Pit Bottas when he built a big enough gap to Perez and leave Hamilton out to block Verstappen. Although that wouldn't have mattered with the wheel nut but it was the most obvious strategy

Finally, if they did the lap after Stroll they might have had a chance of catching Gasley

Don't think the softs would last to have a go at Gasly. Would have used them up by the time he got there I think.

I guess you can say 2nd is generally a good result for Ferrari but given after the first runs in Q3 they really should have been 1-2 (Sainz lost 3 tenths in the final sector and was actually up on Leclerc before that) it’s a chance to win gone begging.

Maybe it’s best for the world championship with Max winning but disappointing that Ferrari can’t maximise when a chance comes their way.

Surprised Red Bull didn't bring Perez to get fastest lap, there was a big gap to Seb

Well done Max, deserved the win, pretty straight forward. Shame for Charles. Bad weekend for Lewis and Mercedes. On to the next one.

A slight little mistake under blue flags.. Maybe braking a little bit... Early on the way to the chicane.. A little rear tyre on front wing sort of thing.
