Re: One Stop or Two?

I posted something similar last week, but I'll post again as I think it's relevant. Two stop races should always be considered faster than one stop races. Why? Because, a one stop strategy will give a driver track position, and therefore two-stoppers must received extra compensation for having to ov...

The same or worse. I don't see Hulk as having any strengths Bottas lacks, and I wouldn't rate his outright pace quite as high.

That is really unfair on Bottas. He had a team instruction to box just behind Verstappen when his tyres were in far better shape - and he looked as quick as Hamilton at this stage. Then Hamilton gets to go longer. Given that Hamilton got by with 2 laps left, I think it is almost certain that Bottas...

These Pirelli tyres are so strange that you can run them at 85% and they'll last a whole race, but if you drive them at 95% they last five laps.

Now in order to tempt the teams away from a one stop strategy they have t...
