  • Verstappen took the better racing line and was hugging the corners you can clearly tell starting from 0:30 Pause at 0:33 Verstappen has 20% of his car outside the chicane Hamilton barely uses it at 0:34 same thing except left side MV has entire left tire outside of chicane. He nailed the corners in the middle sector so much momentum. Smart driving!

  • What more can I ask for.

  • Turn 10 made the difference.

  • I can see that on each turn, Versttapen using "more " curves of the circuit ... which gives him the pole. He will be the 2021 world champion .. please remember this comment at the end of the season.

  • might be a silly question, the blue stripe on top of the Mercedes steering wheel, they've had that on for the last few years but its always in the middle usually, this weekend its been over to one side, any reason for it?

  • Who's here after Lewis won the Bahrain GP, and managed Max's head to let him try the overtake just in the track section which is not allowed, even when Lewis had almost twice the tyre usage and clearly with a Mercedes not being the fastest car in the whole weekend

    Miguel MorcilloMiguel Morcillo16 napja
    • "clearly not the fastest car"? If I compare these laps, Lewis made a small mistake which cost him pole. Car performance seems pretty equal (also race pace). They both really drove their car on the limit today, where the strategy of Mercedes paid off. Stating that the Merc "clearly isn't the fastest car" is a bit bold.

  • Hamilton admitted he was cutting the corners the WHOLE race on the board radio so 5 seconds penalty at least. Max won.

  • Hanmiton missed the apex of turn 9 really cost him having to fight the car through some oversteer mid courner

    Ben RobertsBen Roberts17 napja
  • If you notice, Verstappen's steering inputs were more definite, whereas Hamilton had to input a corrections at almost every turn in the final sector. Essentially and obviously, Hamilton was pushing the Car beyond it's abilities, whereas Verstappen looked more comfortable. What i conclude is, that either the Car or driver is lacking somewhere, slightly. Enough for the Red Bull to do better. Tonight, provided therr are no surprises for Verstappen, he is going to have an easy win.

  • Lewis run was smoother and you could tell better so I think Lewis will get more out of his tyres during the race.

    Lenny TamesingLenny Tamesing17 napja
  • It's really amazing how by comparing them side by side you can see the difference of a few tenths of a second in the times of both cars! Also, the Honda has always sounded lower, but in 2021 the Mercedes will be lower and rougher, and the engines of both cars will sound similar!

    さんたすけさんたすけ17 napja
  • Lets not forget that Max got pole with a damaged floor which severely compromises aerodynamics, this RB is an absolute beast of a car, fitting for the absolute beast of a megatalent that Max is. Man IF ONLY he had a car on par with his quality ever since he got into F1 Lewis wouldn't have 7 WDC's.

  • hmmm, on the home straight the Merc is still quicker by a tenth and then through turn 1 and 2 Verstappen claws back the difference BUT on the 2nd straight by the end the Merc pulls back the difference... it seems Merc is still the faster car in the straight line regardless of whatever anyone says about honda's 'miracle' last engine, a bit concerning seen as the merc is not yet handling how it should, once they sort that out which they always do I see them pulling clear again.

  • My key takeaway: These two drivers are near identical. So much so, that I could say it's down to the car. That's how close they are. I can't say Max is better than Hamilton, nor Hamilton is better than Max. However, the Red Bull does appear to be ever so slightly faster going through some corners, but that's not where the massive difference came from. It's the acceleration out of the corners. The Merc struggles for rear traction while the Red Bull is really planted.
