Well , Lewis is really worried about MAX . He saw that MAX was really fast in the long runs from today .
According Lewis : "MAX is dangerously close to us" !
3 articles in Dutch :

1-Lewis worried => https://racingnews365.nl/hamilton-is...-heel-dichtbij

2-Mercedes (James Allison) MAX is just as fast as us => https://racingnews365.nl/mercedes-zi...o-snel-als-wij

3-Horner happy => Today during the long runs MAX ran outstanding on mediums and hard , no tire issues or whatsoever => https://racingnews365.nl/horner-kijk...edium-erg-goed
That's why he wanted mandatory 2 stops.

I really hope Vettel doesn't get stuck behind drivers who are slower but outqualified him because his tire management was great and on the medium tire long runs he was 4-5th fastest.

One thing that caught my eye was that Verstappen was entering T1 one gear lower than the rest and T1 one gear higher. While Leclerc and Vettel were consistently using lower gear exiting which shows the low torque of their engines.
