Aero taking away from the racing again. Hamilton probably needs to conserve tires too but presumably had to back off due to brake temps there?

I'm guess I'm not a racer as such, but given Hamilton's title lead I'd be thinking second is not too bad.

Why not get him in with 20 - 25 to go, throw on a set of meds, turn the wick up & tell him to go for it?

Hamilton would have to be a bit dumb to retire with brake failure, calm down.

That was perfect IMO. Possible to overtake but not a given. Don't forget this was a fight effectively without DRS as well.

Hamilton needed a mistake and backmarker and how much faster is he? It's not really possible though.

He ripped 6 seconds out of him in 3 laps on the hards, he wont be going quite so mad on these tyres but hes going to catch Verstappen for sure.

Lewis needs more than a second lap to give him a few laps to try the pass at the end. Should get tasty.

Hamilton needed a mistake and backmarker and how much faster is he? It's not really possible though.
The backmarker hurt him really because Verstappen got DRS. This race has been made much better by the overtake not being a given.

Verstappen is in 19s that's too quick for Hamilton to catch.

5 seconds closed in 5 laps. 15 seconds left, 15 laps left.

Could go either way!

Not quite enough pace for Hamilton to catch Verstappen, unless Verstappen tyres start to give up...

Well, it was 2nd either way if it doesnt work. Verstappen is going to cook his tyres at this pace though.
