Red Bull Chief Christian Horner has admitted that with the second stop of Lewis Hamilton, Mercedes has strategically outperformed the Red Bulls team, which did not expect such moves.
After his second stop in the boxing, Lewis Hamilton took advantage of the new tires and captured and overtook Max Verstappen by the end of the race.
After the end of the race, Red Bull Chief Christian Horner admitted that the British attack could not be defended.
We didn't expect Mercedes to be called back to the boxes again, but when they did, it was too late. If Max were to make a stop in the next round, he would lose his place, as Hamilton was much faster on the track. Then we could just wait for what rhythm Hamilton would have. In the end we saw that it was significantly faster and Max was powerless. Too bad we lost the win, but Mercedes was better this time.
