    Danny Ricc having a decent race. Glad to see after his struggles.

    So who's tyres are getting hammered more here, Max out front or the two behind?

    Not sure how Perez is going to be in the mix here, he has made a second and a half back up since coming out though.

    Good opportunity for Bottas here with Lewis not having DRS on Max.

    Let's see if he'll take some of his frustration out.

    And Bottas has already slipped out of DRS range.

    FFS, he doesn't do himself any favours at times.

    Hamilton much closer now.

    Why did some teams leave their drivers out so long on the first set of tires if it’s going to be a one stop race?


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,500 ✭✭✭ Sabre0001


    Those staying out are going to have to be very fast at the end to make up for long stint. Leclerc making up places showed that the undercut was the way to go. Surprised merc didn't have Hamilton in earlier. VER will have his work cut out for him.

    Max playing a blinder here but I don’t think he can hold out for much longer.
    I hope to be proven wrong!


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,669 ✭✭✭ Faugheen


    Have Mercedes got another set of mediums? You'd have to wonder if bringing Hamilton in later on is in their minds if they do have one.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,234 ✭✭✭ Rossi IRL


    Wonder if we will see Hamilton pit again sooner than scheduled

    Leave Bottas out to pressure Max.

    I think there are some games in these radio messages.

    Seems like everyone is thinking a two stopper.


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,669 ✭✭✭ Faugheen


    This has to be a two-stopper. LeClerc is all over the place.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,500 ✭✭✭ Sabre0001


    Can Perez do one stop if everyone else doing two?

    🤪



  • Registered Users Posts: 11,308 ✭✭✭✭ ctrl-alt-delete


    Lando's front left looks fairly bad again,

    Surely this has to be a two stop?


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,466 ✭✭✭✭ MadYaker


    There’s going to be more stops the tires aren’t lasting


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,669 ✭✭✭ Faugheen


    The state of Lando's tyres and they're only a few laps old.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,077 ✭✭✭ McFly85


    Mercedes thinking about a 2 stopper, but I don’t think they’ll actually be able to catch Perez if they do.

    If anyone can, it's him.

    He's quietly putting in some lovely lap times too.

    Could be a good day for Aston Martin and perez if this goes to a two stopper

    Martin brundle is thinking the same. If the info being said on the radio is accurate.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,579 ✭✭✭✭ namloc1980


    Even the hard tyres are getting shredded after only fairly short stints.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,308 ✭✭✭✭ ctrl-alt-delete


    Redbull in an awful quandry,

    given the time Perez has made up on his tyres i'd risk it and go first with Max.

    Surely looking about these tyres cannot last to the end.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,365 ✭✭✭ Charlie-Bravo


    It's coming up to crunch time and this pit decision. I'd expect stops as tyres are turning into mush

    Max pitting.
    The mercs will have to respond you’d think as more than a few drivers are saying the same think about the tyres being goosed.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,234 ✭✭✭ Rossi IRL


    Merc too slow with their pit calls


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,308 ✭✭✭✭ ctrl-alt-delete


    Next message to Segio is let Max through.


  • Registered Users Posts: 25,096 ✭✭✭✭ Buttonftw


    Good shout from Red Bull I would think. Can't imagine Mercedes were putting on such awful pace.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,767 ✭✭✭ Burkie1203


    LH tyres look sh1t

    I think Max made the right call.
