With this going on, Bottas is likely to have a good tyre advantage towards the end of the race. I think that Hamilton may be screwed.

If Bottas had stayed out another lap, he’d have won this race.

FFS! McLaren, it’s hard to support them sometimes.

Yeah both driving hard but with Hamilton on Meds it'll be hurting him more than Leclerc.

Leclerc zigzagging across the track when already on a warning. No chance of anything being done about of course.

Luckily for Bottas is that Hamilton is putting so much pressure on Leclerc, very much doubt it would be the same the other way round.

I get the feeling that as bottas often doesn't manage his tyres very well, that when he gets to leclerc, if he does, i don't think he will get by.

Inclined to agree. This is swinging to LeClerc.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing, should Hamilton have been put on the hards given how early he pitted, the tyres seem ok for Leclerc.

Bottas just doesn’t have that edge to take the win, reminds me a bit of Bahrain a couple of years ago.

Hmm. Surprised Bottas has been completely impotent when given the chance to hunt down Leclerc. Disappointing performance.

Mercedes might regret not reversing the strategies.
