Most on one pit stop one driver no pit stops do you think hamilton should have stayed out i thought you had to make a stop
No. Drivers are required to use 2 different type of dry tires in the final race.
This doesn’t apply, however, if intermediate or full wet tires are being used by the driver.
Tough call, I think Hammy should have stayed out! It was the difference between 1 or 6 points for the Championship lead and the race for the Constructors Cup…
@Caveman2 , @Minx , As l am following the race via the
forum,(can’t afford sky)! I can’t comment from wot you lot
are saying it seems there was a shower?? (I told you ) !!
and Hamilton pitted for wets??
Everybody else stayed out, and it stopped raining ??
Ergo "Hammy " fourth so far??
I can’t guess what lap it is ??
Shame, yes, but Toto Wolff said that Hamiltion’s tyres were shot and his result would have worse had continued had he not changed them.
I feel Toto made the wrong call
Lewis didn’t want to come in to change tyres ( inters) he didn’t have to, but cars around him had changed and were faster,
Fairy 'nuff. Perhaps Hamilton might comment on that.
Yeah, but he didn’t need to pit. He would have made it for another 8 laps in my opinion.
I know, tough call new intermediates which you need to clear before it’s any good (minimum 4 laps) or carry on as is with now bald tires … with 8 laps remaining
@Minx ,. Thanks for the effort Minx but sky have blocked
the video Never mind l will catch it tonight on delayed
Yes, I agree. My initial reaction was amazement when Lewis pitted. In retrospect, it was probably why they did what they did. Right decision?
Ah well, we won’t know.
He did radio in he wanted to stay out but was overridden so in he came. His team should have listened to him!
Yeah, they should have listened to him

And there again he might have been overtaken by several other drivers while his tyres were totally screwed…
Yes. Tough call!
He’s got the pace! Let’s see what happens next…
