Even if Vettel can catch and pass Max now, his tyres are going to be toast by the end of the race compared to Max's nice new ones.
Both are on new tires.

Angry Hamilton under pressure and does a mistake. Happens.. :)
Makes mistake, doesn't hit anyone. Oh, it can happen after all... :wink:
he's just bailing out of all battles. Easy not to hit anyone when you're not even trying
All season long? #-o

I doubt it was a mistake considering it happened to Bottas exactly the same. Tyres just ran out of grip during high retardation
You can compensate that by driving style (braking earlier for example).
That is no way to talk about a 5 time WDC.

Lewis' tyres have already done 2 flying laps in Q1, still don't know why they used them in the first place, they used the hypers later in Q1.
