The Mercs white smoke issue seems to be fixed as well .
My friend,remember the Pirelli p zero tyre ad...'Power is nothing without control' and even 150 hp more has a limit.BOTH Mercs had blow outs,HAM was lucky but his dice can't keep rolling positive on those odds.

Mate . This was a matter of Mercs strategy . HAM was keeping his tire issue silent ...He was already losing time on MAX (5 sec.) So at that time I knew he was in trouble with his tires , just like BOT .
2 laps later I couldn't believe my eyes when MAX pitted ...
Probably that was a good move by HAM to remain silent over the radio . Otherwise MAX never pitted and won this race !

That's for sure my friend !

On the other hand : The weather forecast for next weekend is hotter .
At least over here for the next 14 days , another heatwave is coming with next weekend 35/37C !

If Red Bull had 'spotters' with walkie talkies then for sure Horner would never have made the call for tyres for Max.

It's 33C next week here so possibly much hotter for Silverstone than today and the hotter it is the more pressure on the tyres

Honestly . Horner threw MAX his victory away ...

And the Mercs couldn't pit . Otherwise MAX won the race anyway !

The DARK side was today very.....Very Lucky !!!

You saw Bottas,tyre deflate happened within two bends and he's a rim rider.
If you ain't first, you're last

The very first close picture from MAX after the race from today ...As you can see he's #NotHappy !

I'm pretty sure he requested a meeting with Horner regarding the disaster pitstop in lap "51" of 52 .

i started to think Max should move to McLaren maybe.. next year with Merc' engines McLaren can make something special.. their chassis is not bad at all..

Old adage. Hindsight is 20:20. Real shame. I had almost turned off the race with 5 laps to go.....

Next week will be different, yet, all Teams are better informed about tires issues ,etc.

Thankfully, Milan San Remo is next Sunday

Cheers

Mate . I don't think so . Why ?
Because : As you can see MAX is the only driver from the rest of the field , who can defeat a Black Merc in his RB16 @Red Bull .
The rest is out of sight ...

MAX is more thinking of the new FIA'22 regulations . "Than" his time will come !
Meanwhile he can always play with the Blacks ...

Mate I see your point . But your statement is actually based on speculations .
And the Toto-Blacks would never agree with a faster McLaren with a Merc PU. So , nothing will change .

On the other hand : Poor SEB !

Seb should try having a shave and his luck may change
The more quiet he is then they'll adjust his car to 'their' liking.

Would you think MAX would run into same trouble if he didn't pit? I might not recall correctly but the screen show his front left was down to 10% when he pit? Or was he able to push hard with those worn front left tire to catch HAM?
