As you say my friend HAM 's car had priority over BOT as usual and some rethinking by their techs on tyre strat.

I dont think there’s a single race that goes by where I don’t say how the fuck is Grosjean still in an F1 car.

Just discovered Max's PU was changed to a previously used PU with mgu-k and mgu-h and turbo after his race engine had an issue.That explains some way the gap with HAM taking in certain things..

Driving and thinking about strategy. He might as well get out of the car and change the tires himself.
Max ahead of Bottas in that rocket is a magnificent result. Vettel in the tractor in 38 lap old softs ahead of Albon is also great.

wow it was a rock solid race from Lewis and Merc's and Lewis was still going even if they told him it was the last lap..
well done to Lewis and Merc'.. posting so consistent laps adjusting the rhythm perfectly.. having meetings until late in the evening for tires worked nicely.. such a great team one of the best in history and so happy to witness these days!!
and Bottas should ve done the same thing like Lewis did and ask for mediums instead not softs sharply.. maybe because Lewis studied tires more this weekend donno but surely didnt help Bottas having softs in 2nd pitstop..

felt so angry to Red Bull for ruining Albon's race really!!
i know that they like to gamble which is nice but putting him on hard tires into traffic that early into the race was being toooooo optimistic.. poor guy could have a better race... and seems like Red Bulls expected tire advantage wasnt there or that advantage was eaten by Merc's hard work.. well done to Max and Albon.. i hope Albon can get a better race next time.. Max and his engineers talk was a like engineer was the bigger brother at some point.. pretty sincere talks they re having..

so unlucky for Leclerc having a problem in such a period of the race that they were playing with Norris so nicely.. they were having a great race and they re the future of F1.. they re great friends, they do respect each other and both very fast drivers.. it was so nice to watch them.. and great to see drivers can fire up on their own really.. before i hated that deprivation..
for Vettel, not trying to joke its nice that he didnt spin and put a better race this weekend.. but the radio calls were so messy that it started to sound like Ferrari - Vettel relationship is like a married couple hate each other but have to stay together in the same small house.. since covid is around interactions with other people is limited as well.. it sucks and i guess there is no way to rebuild it even for some time...

pretty nice race for Racing Points.. Perez's penalty was right i was watching Lewis' onboard at that time yeah he passed more than 3 posts but wasnt looking like he was blocking or at least not that much.. but rules are rules and fall behind Stroll..

McLarens were a bit lost in this race but watching Norris is always fun though..

Merc' guys wouldnt even try such a thing..
yeah they had a late call for telling this to Vettel.. i dont want to think Ferrari was sabotaging his race cause they need points badly.. probably it wasnt planned before the race.. it could ve planned properly but it paid off actually by doing 1 stop but maybe more points could have snapped of course..

It looks like it was planned because on the radio he said "we talked about this **** before".

37laps on softs?? Looks like SF are economical with things prior to Seb's departure, funny they gave him a new tub then.

touching a kerb, getting over a kerb and hitting a kerb is all different things..
the kerb i told dont remember was in FP1 or 2 Vettel hit the curb and flew over.. he thought car d understeer but it didnt.. and its normal that Vettel attracts more than Albon etc.. he has 4 WDC even if the last one was 7 years ago..

In spite of the Merc dominance, really enjoying the season - and HAM is showing again that he is among, if not the GOAT.

It must be there’s not much else to watch....

Anyone have a Website for mini sector times for qualie?

Yes. I've noticed Seb not appearing to push when he is way down from his teammate, many times.

i started to think that since Lewis is pretty consistent almost all the time he makes things look easy.. when you compare him with Bottas in the very same car with great engineers he sometimes crushing him if not he is not in his day being better still.. otherwise Bottas could be a champ during this time.. 4th year now.. maybe Bottas is not the greatest driver but he became pretty good in recent 1-2 years at least still faster than most of the grid if he wont demoralize himself like few times he did in the past.. cause he had chances to be better than Lewis and it didnt work.. then he became a clear 2nd driver in the end each season..

for mini sector times, i guess F1 TV has the best mini sectors information i dont know any site has much details like that..

I can't find it but what I understood is that it's something they talked about pre-race.
Anyway, this radio exchange shows more than before the lack of trust and how the team abandoned him.

Here's a transcript of him telling his strategists how to do their jobs.
