Exactly. Thing is I can see why he wanted the point, I can also see why the team didn't want him to go for it. So this extra point could end up creating friction in the teams it seems.
Hmmmm. It's never that he's been beaten is it? Although to Lewis credit be said afterwards that there was nothing wrong with the car.Mercedes just tweeted that Lewis car has a chunk of its floor missing. No idea why or when.
That explains why he couldn't keep up with Bottas.
he's got a point & nice to know im famous
I'm not sure this public statement will be helpful to Bottas in his championship race.he's got a point & nice to know im famous
but to be fair his performance in 2018 & was criticism was justified, finishing 5th in the championship & no wins in that Mercedes when your team won 11 times & the title 3 races to go was dreadful when & he was lucky to have this drive by fact that he signed that contract in the mid season break as if he waited til the October then Ocon would be in that seat
I think that it's a bit of both, Vettel was very very slow at the end of the race, and I don't believe that it was just to a poor set of tyres, considering that he was complaining about not having enough power my take is that they had some reliability issue and gave him less revs to take the car to the end, on the other hand Leclerc was flying on the hard tyres whereas he was just about ok on the red ones.Leclerc - Didn't really show the pace of Vettel in qualifying or most of the race. Only towards the end of the race did he show (much) more speed than Vettel. I have not checked the lap times to if that was due to him showing speed or Vettel getting slower.
