Exactly, merc do not have this comfortably at all.I doubt the Merc could have followed that close for as long as the Ferrari did. Merc do have a slightly faster/higher top speed car, but not all tracks suit that. We saw from this race that Ferrari can pretty much match them now.
Oh, yeah, Lewis really had to work for it, I'm not taking that away from him but Seb was on tyres which were what, a second faster per lap?Hamilton had to race for dear life over those last 10 or so laps and one mistake could've cost him the race. Was anything but comfortable.
I think they missed the best window earlier. Kind of hoping its postponed till tomorrow morning now. Don't want them making a panic decision with little time left and making it a complete lottery.This is awful. The best suggestion I've seen with the improved track conditions is send the cars round under the VSC to clear some water.
It's a little insulting to the fans just leaving everyone hanging around.I think they missed the best window earlier. Kind of hoping its postponed till tomorrow morning now. Don't want them making a panic decision with little time left and making it a complete lottery.
Which isn't going to happen in F1 as tracks either need to own them or they need to be shipped around the world to every eventThis is what we use when it rains and we need to dry the track (in this case to make it bone dry). A jet drier will disperse surface water with ease. The baffling thing is they used to do drag racing at Monza, so they know about this, and for the sake of 15mins of zipping up and down the pit straight, we'd have finished qualifying by now.
Slowly but surely, it's becoming more and more risk averse. If they want to wait til the track's bone dry, they might as well call it and let everyone go home.
