He was certainly in danger from the RBs and Ham just based on race pace but didnt expect him to get passed by Gasly and Seb from P11. Same with Sainz, Id at least thought hed be able to hold P5.

Good for Seb though, fantastic race and deserved podium.

Fight for 3rd was also epic.

So did HAM leave brake magic on (resulting in the hot brakes) and maybe change the way the brakes feel/react and so being the cause that he messed up his braking in 1st corner?
That would be a very stupid mistake for such an experienced driver if that were true...

edit: M5Rick has the same thougtpattern

seems like i missed my Red Bull prediction before the race missed by 300 meters..
well done Checo!!
he was quite up there before pitting and actually he could have been in front already.. but at anyways.. Perez delivered what he supposed to do in a very good way..

i guess that was Lewis' worst mistakes in recent years that cost a lot.. stop working on the car this early doesnt seem like a good idea now... and Bottas.. he will be in trouble soon as things are looking so far..

it was good to see Vettel on podium.. it was what he really needed.. i hope he ll stay motivated and the car will be fast for rest of the season.. he is been through a lot in recent 1.5 years..

Leclerc was so close to overtake Gasly but yeah there wasnt enough laps for it.. as Norris ready to bite as soon as a chance unfolds..


------


if there was no cut in 2 tires that exploded.. Pirelli will be working really hard until next race + probably we ll see harder compounds in the rest of the season..
