Here’s the strategy view of yesterday’s race, reference Leclerc. The strategy view means that also the pit stop of the reference is taken into account in order to have a clear view of what happened during the race.
Vettel gains 2.6 seconds just in his out lap, plus what he gained in his inlap got him the lead by a tiny margin.
Mercedes with a very good feeling in the first stint seems totally without pace in the second, see how the green lines of hamilton and bottas drop after each restart.
Verstappen on the ball when needed, good pace overall. Ferrary super job to bring the 1-2 home.
The lead of Vettel was almost by chance: he had to defend from Verstappen and attack Hamilton and the team correctly stopped him first.
