Ricciardo sticking within a pitstop of MV prevented Max from coming into the pits to try and undercut / pass on track Bottas with fresh rubber. They all were focused on simply preserving their tires (so not too close behind a car in front and dirty warm air that degrades the tires). Had DR been further back MV could have switched to a racing tire and tried to hunt down Bottas.
Good performance in one race does not mean Renault are catching Red Bull. It may well have just been track specific. As for Albon he has finished in front of both Renault cars in 4 or the 7 races so far this term. Don't forget on one of the 3 he did not beat them both he would have got a podium if Hamilton had not taken him out.

It's called auto racing. What you're talking about is Verstappen had a strategic manuever removed from him due to circumstances and instead if he wanted to move forward he was required to race for the position.

Also if Max had blinked and come in for tyres I suspect Bottas would simply have done the same. I was a little surprised neither Bottas nor Max even tried it to at least see if the other side reacted

It is an historic day in a way, as there will be no more British ownership of a Formula One team after this weekend on records.
Coming from times where all Formula one teams were owned by British but Ferrari, it is a very sad achievement.
Give me back the 1970s F1...

I reckon the consolation of most teams being based here in the UK and having a British world champ will keep us going.

Mercedes - just to mention one - stated many times it will move out in case of no Deal Brexit. But dream on - continue to pretend these Economics considerations carried out by companies worried about their developings do not exist

I've read that article and there must be something lost in translation or you are a lying toerag. At no point does Wolf say Mercedes will leave the UK with a no deal Brexit.

Ferrari not even the fastest Italian team at Monza. Can’t see teams giving up their British engineers.


Oh, and I’ve translated and read the example of teams saying they’ll depart if a no deal and it says nothing of the sort Alain. Nothing of the sort.

Yeah ok whatever you want
Brexit and hard Brexit - UK, UK people, UK based companies Definitely are the winners. Free travel for UK companies inside UK (people and goods and raw materials). But not for the world that stays out, and world is the loser that will have to figure out how to reach UK for everything it needs. Not the other way round

I know it's the first time since 1984 Ferrari haven't had a car in the top 10 at Monza but you have to get a grip Alan. All this lashing out is not going to help you feel better in the long run.

I don't really follow F1 but is Hamilton that good or does he just have the best car or some combo of the two? I presume his team mate has a similar car but doesn't do as well.

He has the best car. However every now and again he will deliver a which you know only Max Verstappen may be capable of delivering. It would be good if they both had competitive cars.

That has the same quotes. Nothing in it saying they will leave the UK with a no deal Brexit. Plenty in it to suggest they probably will. Can you and Alan seriously not tell the difference

Only saw it from the restart and it was a German stream so had no idea what had gone on. It was a good watch Shame for Carlos Kimi held them up at the restart.

Let’s not pretend it wasn’t accidental or a timing issue. All the teams were out with tyres ready and information was slow to disseminate.
