So far , he didn't change anything .

We will never know but I doubt that Ocon would have finished P3 if Leclerc had not been demoted from P3 to P6 after the qualies.

How do you know that? First, ALO questioned the call for mediums so it was an AM call. Second, he came in 2 laps before Max did. If he had put on intermediates, there was a good likelihood he would have taken the lead, given that Max was slipping and sliding those 2 laps. This is based on the news info as I have no other information that I rely on.

Matching Max? They are not driving the same car so how do you know for sure?

This, but they never carried it out hence RB did a better calculation and job.
ALO is in a AM and Max in a RB so there's your answer.

Red Bull called MAX in for new mediums . But MAX said 'NO !
MAX said : I want inters , this was the right decision and part from his victory .

ALO and the Aston strategy screwed themself by the wrong decision.
BTW : Everyone was slipping and sliding in the rain .
But I don't see who drives better in the rain than MAX. Suzuka 2022 ?

MAX sails to his 3rd World title in a row and I don't see who can stop him...

Yes AM made the wrong call, based on a faulty radar so they say.

Where is this INFO where RB wanted to put Mediums and Max said inters?

The fact that Max got nearly 60 laps out of the Med tire was what set the tone for that race. He enabled himself the opportunity to pick and choose when and what to pit for. How he was able to do 2 laps on very worn slick tires I have no idea as most others seemed to struggle more on the Int than he did on those Med.
Overall edge of your seat Quali and race was good. Monaco is a race you need to be on your A game the entire time. There may not be a lot of passing but one little mistake and it can or will ruin your race. Max delivered in spades today.

Just put it down to RB and Max combination with using the armco's as a steady

I called it...I wanted Binotto out but #FerrariFred was the wrong choice. He didn't prove himself at Alpha Romeo. He won't do it at Ferrari...Just more wasted years

I don't know why there is all this talk about LH going to Ferrari. I just don't see him wanting to go there with the continuing saga of fiasco after fiasco.

I heard it on the radio that Max was demanding inters after being told Meds and Horner then confirming and telling him to come in for inters.

I can't see HAM making an iota of difference by going to the muddle which is Ferrari now and frankly I think Ferrari have taken a wrong turn with their car like Merc has.

Okay Google translate says RB asked him what he wanted and yes, pitting 2 laps after ALO, inters were the clear choice Mate.

AM messed up and RB made the right call sealed the win. Nothing taken away from the superb job Max made and ALO as well to be able to hold on to second even after making two pitstops.

It is but I never even believed there was anything serious about LH going there when the rumours started weeks ago. Talk about ALO blowing up Ferrari before he left because they could not get it together would pale in comparison with what Lewis would do IF he actually went to Ferrari given what he already had done with Merc the last 2 seasons.

I think Charlie will finally take Checo's seat .

MAX wouldn't have a problem with that ...

^ I can see that also, that Monaco tunnel non call about fast approaching Norris may have been the last straw for Chas.

Interesting thing to speculate about.

I think LEC, NOR and HULK are all potential candidates for a set at RB
