Saw a short interview with Hamilton; he said they lost a little bit in lap times for qualifying (really?), but we a bit faster in race trim. So Mercedes was able to turn up their engine higher than anyone else. Man, they really outclassed everyone this year. Additional bits I saw the YouTube channel The Race, both Redbull and Ferrari designed their chassis with more down force expecting more engine power. That didn’t work out well for either of them (though RB faired better).Yep and it didn't seem to hurt the Merc's as much as everyone hoped it would.
Hamilton works hard with his race engineer throughout the race to manage the pace, his tires and the car. And you're right, Schumacher did this too as well as Vettel.interesting race, all the re-ording because of accidents and restarts. Thought Bottas actually had a shot this weekend with a great start and rolling restart. That last terrible restart ended his chances. Ricardo looked like he got everything out of his Renault. Albon had an excellent race - maybe this kid really can be a good number 2 at RB (if he keeps progressing). Hamilton cruises to victory after that last restart with some tire management. I really like this track, but it seems to be a handful for the drivers.
Watched a short documentary on Vettel's four championships - same as Hamilton; get pole, put in fast laps right away and then no one can catch up. Guess this has often been the way with multi-championship winners.
