Re: 2020 Portugal Grand Prix Race Thread

This DRS is crazy. I don't remember seeing such a speed difference before. It's like watching LMP1 cars against GTAm. This track could've been fine without DRS. The full throttle section (coming out of T14) is extremely long and its a lot of gain solely from slipstream. Overall beautiful track, goo...

Not looking good for Max, strategy wise.
He could have to fight Leclerc for P3. The latter is doing an amazing job.

Stroll again with that turning in T1 as no one was there. You must have been pretty oblivious to not notice Norris hit him. It is like sayign Verstappen didn't hit Perez and Perez spun on his own.

Re: 2020 Portugal Grand Prix Free Practice & Qualifying Thread

Its all reducing to 'cooperation', at a situation which is often seen in practice, they didn't cooperate. For the alongside situation, it was just not the tip of the car, he was going half the straight with half the car alongside, now its common sense to leave -some- room. The point is both have the...

Re: 2020 Portugal Grand Prix Free Practice & Qualifying Thread

At list 50% he was. And it was a close trailing for the whole straight line, Stroll should've been aware of him, especially if getting closer to the corner Max goes on inside (so disappearing from mirrors). Max couldn't assume that, doing 1 single hot lap is very common. It was easier to assume that...

Re: 2020 Portugal Grand Prix Free Practice & Qualifying Thread

Doesn't matter if Stroll would've made another fast lap, you have a car 80% alongside, you should leave some space. It is a common situation in races and the car on the exterior it leaves space usually. Anyway it should've been more cooperation for both of them. Not its silly for both of them to be ...

That's what racing should be, you push, test the limits and sometimes make mistakes. Not just procedural driving, 'staying in the right frame', drive like robots.

Bold prediction.....
Mercedes crash into each other on the restart
Ricciardo wins. Russell gets first points.
That's actually quite probable, I feel Bottas really wants to do something agressive to not settle up again in p2.

I'm not sure about the straight line speed, it seemed to me that Hamilton was much closer through the corners to the ones in front than Bottas ever was, and on straights he was slooowly crawling to the car in front while being very close.
