Speed has always been but one aspect of the attributes required to triumph after a whole season of competition from other drivers and teams. I have held that pure speed is the traditional trump card in the drivers armoury, until this recent regime. And as we see from the best driver so far this year, Lewis, who has deployed all the best attributes, including speed, tyre management, patience and focus
So Perez and Grosjean on one stop strategies would have seen their tyres improve if the race had been extended and would have breezed past Lewis for the win?
Its easy to generalise, but its more challenging to actually see the situation in its context, Lewis (and Seb) are able to produce any type of racing attribute at will and thats what makes them great. This year when speed is not the king the fastest driver is leading the WC
think about it please
