Nah had to be done. Had to pit on lap 1, race already ruined so gamble on a safety car to make a second stop at the right time.
Look at Albon. Was a couple of seconds ahead of Dan before he pitted. Now 7th. Dan in 13th and falling. Was never going to go the distance and be competitive on 1 set.

it didnt matter what they did with dan. the opening lap f’ed him and raikkonen. the pit time would've put him down where he is now anyways, and the renault is just too crap anyways.

grosjean was exactly correct. the same thing has happened basically every race. good qualifying, no race pace every week.

He would've had enough tyres to sneak a point or 2.

Funny that Renault left Ricciardo out on a garbage strategy in the hopes he would be able to last all 44 laps on a single set of tyres and win points, while their cast away driver finishes 8th, while Albon, who Ricciardo was chasing for 8 laps, finished 5th.

Far out Renault strike an incompetent tone.

maybe. but renault have just been so underwhelming, they probably would've f’ed it up somehow.
Yeah, Albon did well, but he's in a Red Bull. In retrospect Ricciardo should have pitted but would have been good enough for no more than one or two points. It was a worthy gamble.
