Oh, the interview with Lewis ought to be great fun.Way I understood it from post race radio between Hamilton and the team they overcooked the tires with their "magic" button. Someone forgot to remind Lewis to turn the mechanism off while on the grid.
Then again, these drivers always have an excuse for everything, and once again, it's the tires.
I must have the timeline screwed up. because again, I didn't get to see it and the cable is still out. If you look at the highlight package, it appears Lewis has the lead on a restart and simply locks up. Verstappen was out of the race by then, or at least that's what the video looks like. If that were the case, getting cute was absolutely the worst thing you could do. Take the points and be happy. Instead, it was a cluster operation for everyone.Fact is, they didn't need to get cute. Just get the car in the top 10 and that was that. Things go wrong when you try to do too much with a car that wasn't fast enough. Max was out at that point so what is Hamilton doing risking points when he's already in a hole?
I guess it's this kind of thing that always makes Baku so interesting.
