Gap from MAX vs BOT is 0.9 sec.

MAX over the board radio : Battery power is recharging too slowly...(issue)

MAX is under BOT's rear wing !

So far , smart race from the GOAT !

And game over. Fantastic race from HAM. He had a bad launch and lost to Max off the line, than compensated for it via great race craft through the race. Picked off Max and Bot with no issues. Managed just tires beautifully

Great tire management from HAM . Congrats my friend !
As for MAX's blown tire . It's under investigation . Can be a tire puncture by debris on the track ...

This race looked good with a top 3 battle in the front !

Perfectly executed race strategy from Merc. Kudos there for sure.

Great work RIC, well done!

Max had a great launch, and capitalized on a big mistake from BOT. BOT is thanking is lucky stars today for sure.

It came down to tire management today, and HAM is king when it comes to that. Went 2 --> 3 --> 1st. Hats off again.

Thanks.

I'm gutted for Max. He pressured BOT into a mistake. Nicely done!! Did you see the debris that came from BOTs car?

I'm no expert on aerodynamics but this may have caused a few problems...

Yeah . It's the driver and not the car ! Give me a break
Prove they are using it. FIA inspects the cars and telemetry constantly.

Red Bull and Honda just canít design a car and power unit to compete - itís that simple....or some would say Merc also has better drivers.
