Re: 2020 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Race Thread

Maybe it would have been better if Russell had been in the Merc, Hamilton's not looked on it at in the race, he did admit today that he felt better, I would question if he's fully fit. What more could Hamilton do? Not race... I think the only reason he was back in the car is he did not like someone...

Re: 2020 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Race Thread

Is Bottas holding Hamilton up? It's pretty unusual for Bottas to be faster so you'd guess so. If Hamilton was being held up, you would have thought he would drive at least a bit closer rather than 3 - 4 seconds. Surely around 2 seconds would do no harm to his tyres? Mercedes just don't look quick t...

Re: 2020 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Race Thread

:frown: Lewis doesn't look very punchy today. I don't think Hamilton has overtaken a leading car in open racing here. Only off the start in 2014. It's a combination of a track where it's tough to overtake and he's still recovering from COVID-19. Not just overtaking, it seems like he is just driving...

Will be a boring 1 stopper on a poor track which is difficult to overtake. I still believe Mercedes should win if all 3 cars are close together in a 2v1 scenario.

Hamilton generally always had better race pace, tyre wear and fuel management over Rosberg and Bottas. There’s an obsession with Bottas being able to race Hamilton but it’s not exactly something Rosberg could do either, how many times did Rosberg overtake Hamilton to beat him in 14-16? Rosberg was ...

Hamilton actually maintained the gap through traffic before quickly extending it.


Would like to see if Verstappen can really pull something off here, but it looks so damned difficult.

Why does Verstappen think he's being held up by Bottas ? He hasn't got within DRS range, and it is his job to overtake, not just have his competitors give up.

It's pretty obvious his being held up
