    I think this is the proof in the pudding that while they're all catching well in qualy trim, Maxs car still takes some beating in races.

    Maybe they're hoping for operation Piastri roadblock.

    There goes the roadblock idea.

    Surely he's goalhanging for a SC now?

    No way this strategy works for Norris.

    Better softs at the end I guess, although presumably they'll be getting undercut again on that strategy so yeah.

    Pretty stupid of Merc/Russell to leave Hamilton hanging 1.1s behind.

    Not sure this strategy was really worth it. Would have been less time between them both if Norris just pitted at the same time as Verstappen

    He should be able to shorten the gap once Verstappen's tires fall off. In theory.

    Lando might have weaved one time too many in the middle there, but I guess it probably doesn't matter since he lost the position right after (before regaining it in the next move, that is).

    Hulkenberg is in the points so The Magnussen could well be deployed here.

    Unless there's a SC or rain, Max is gone regardless.

    get the concept of this "lap-by-lap" at the bottom, but it just seems very hard to follow the way they've gone about it.

    Edit: Just realised it might be a F1-tv only thing.

    That's not the type of pit stop you want.

    I think in the end the strategy has been ok-ish. They're closer now (and a place higher) than they were when the first round of stops came about, and that's with shittier pit stops.

    What is this inside outside shit that a lot of the drivers seem to be doing into turn 1 to defend against the DRS?

    I think McLaren have the fastest car at the minute. They’ve been top 2 every single race since Miami on lots of different types of tracks. Arguably should have won in Canada and definitely have the fastest car here. Just threw it away with the start

    Yeah, it went better than I thought it would. Still not good enough unfortunately.

    Must be an overwhelming temptation as the radio engineer to just say "you missed the braking point you twat" or whatever whenever a driver gets on moaning about the car causing them to fuck up.

    McLaren always looking like a rocket ship in the last ten laps of races.

    Be great if they could start a race well

    These two are just dominating at this point. 5 of the last 6 races had them 1-2?

    Well, between the pit stop offset and him binning the start.

    You need to have such a clear head to realise taking your medicine is a better approach than trying to find a way to win from the initial fuck up on a sub-optimal strategy. Everyone always wants to be on the faster tyres at the end but how many times does it work? Once a season, if that?

    It was mostly Lando that did Lando out of a win. His start was abysmal. Not to mention he was clearly on board with their strategy.

    Yeah, he should win that fairly comfortably without dropping to third. Even if he just lost out to Verstappen he wouldn’t have lost as much time.

    Lando and McLaren need to stop giving themselves big work to do later in race.

    Yes the McLaren strategy (and pitstop timings) were wank but I feel like they changed shit on the fly after the awful start.

    Had Lando not been slapped about by Max and George they'd have gone for a safer strategy which would have worked out better.

    Still not sure their strategy was wank. He was 5 seconds behind when Verstappen did his first pit stop (so essentially when their strategy difference started). In hindsight it wasn't a strategy that could win them the game, but it didn't really cost them anything either.
