Just watched it back on Kayo - pulled up at 2:13:29, left at 2:13:37.I swear it was way longer then 4.8 though
Weird - I loaded it back and was a different time stamp. Around the 2:13 mark anyway.Just watched it back on Kayo - pulled up at 2:13:29, left at 2:13:37.
8 seconds stationary - the 4.8 would be the gun maybe.
Lots of technical faults.
Danny Fanboy - His great start saw him get blocked by George and Gasly - could well have been 3rd at turn 2, and run away with Lando like Monza.
McLaren's almost back.
To be fair, the reset may be the reason why we finally have some competition at the top - Mercedes have pretty much stopped developing the 2021 car, in order to put as many resources as possible into developing the 2022 unit. That's allowed McLaren to close the gap.Its taken 8 years to get some competition at the top, and then we reset with new regs for next year.....
yes, someone forgot to press the buttonRe DR's pit stop, I'd have to rewind the tape but for memory it was either Karhun or Davidson explaining it has something to do with waiting for a green light on the wheel guns?, not so much a box stuff up (on someone elses box stop later on).................... I could be wrong and probably am.
However even great orgnaisations like Mercedes make bad calls like they did to Lewis in Hungary (every one else coming in for slick tyres at the race restart)The takeaway from the Lando decision and the Hamilton decision is merely trust in your team.
Mercedes pays for the best and someone made the call that the rain was going to get heavier. The hierarchy at Mercedes believed this person and acted to bring Hamilton in. Hamilton initially questioned the decision but quickly trusted it and reaped the reward.
McLaren had no one who was prepared to call the changing conditions. The hierarchy put it on the driver initially to make the call. When it was to late they tried to make the call. The driver had no trust in the team call.
McLaren are back, but they have along way to go to achieve Mercedes like leadership.
The difference is Mercedes weren’t able to tell Lewis to pit before the race, they weren’t allowed to communicate with him at that point in time so that was on Lewis.Was yesterday on Lando then ?
They aren't the same situation?Was yesterday on Lando then ?
Norris age was on show last night. A bit young, bit immature. Telling his race engineer to shut up. Of course he was highly stressed, but an older head might have listened to pit wall on the strategy.The difference is Mercedes weren’t able to tell Lewis to pit before the race, they weren’t allowed to communicate with him at that point in time so that was on Lewis.
Last night, McLaren were able to talk to Lando and a lack of leadership was evident (not convinced Lando would have listened anyway)
Fair enoughThey aren't the same situation?
In the Hungary situation, the team couldn't contact Hamilton. All the other drivers made the call themselves to change for slicks.
Hamilton decided to stay on the inters.
Last night it's probably six of one, half a dozen of the other. Lando thought he would be fine if the rain maintained, the team could have been more forceful that it would get worse and that inters were the best option.
