Pirelli say 40 laps are possible on the hard tyre. Anyone believe that? At least we should be thankful it wasn't an AWS statistic.

Pit Hamilton now then imo and put on hard tyres. Hamilton was closing. He will do the same this time around, but not if he drops way behind.
He's only dropping a couple of tenths at the moment though, Max isn't taking chunks... Yet

Seems rather odd that Max pitted the first set of hards after 18 laps on lap 30, having pitted to get rid of the mediums on lap 12... If I remember the pitting laps correctly.

Mercedes are waiting too long.

He can't go on to mediums, gonna be stuck in no mans land.

It'll be interesting, at least in F1 levels of interesting, to see if having 7 or 8 lap younger tyres that he can push hard will be enough for Lewis to close up to Max and pass.

Hards about to go on

Good stop for Hamilton. Red Bull's stops were a bit lacking today compared to normal.

Shiny new hard tyres for him and away we go.

I wish I had the faith in strategy algorithms that Merc do:eek: If lewis can close that gap this will be a mighty end to the race. I just think the tyres will disappear by the end and neutralise the race.
