As far as I know , only MAX in a crappy car was able to beat (sometimes) the Mercedes spaceship !

But I can tell you mate , this season and already next weekend it will be otherwise ...
Time for a change !

Max has never driven a car as bad as the McLaren MP4-24 of 2009. The car was pronounced, "Unacceptable", by Martin Whitmarsh the McLaren TP at the time. Not-then Sir Lewis managed 4 pole positions and 2 wins. Max has had a top 3 car for all of his time in at Red Bull Racing. This isn't a valid excuse.

My friend, Max has only averaged 2 wins per season since he has been at Red Bull. He isn't the best performing non-Works Mercedes driver in the field since that year.

We shall see what happens the week at Imola.

It may have been unacceptable by Whitmarsh but he wasn't the one that was driving it friend.
Lewis simply took more chances risking himself and the car more, the 4/24 had a high safety margin and could be pushed more than say the Ferrari at the time.

My friend, look at the results. He has more pole positions (4) in that dog in one season than Max has in his entire career. Further, he has 2 wins in that dog in one season which is 20% of what Max has in his entire return. It's uncanny.

Never forget...that car was rated objectively as the 6th fastest car in 2009.

Not-then Sir Lewis and Sir Lewis win the races that he are supposed to win and the races that he isn't supposed to win. Turkey 2020 and Bahrain 2021.

I, likely the most neutral in this damn chat, can see Lewis has both favor and talent. Max has earned his reputation and whilst he is doing little to shed it, he is making progress.

That said, why on earth are we hashing out circumstances that are beyond control and will not change? To what end? LH won, Max got over, it all happened. The term beating a dead horse seems pathetically inappropriate as it would take an army of dead horses with this single exercise.

The Red Bull strategy f@cked it up at Bahrain . MAX had to close a 10 sec. gap on HAM .
I said *10 sec. my friend ! MAX closed that gap in a few laps !

I normal (Mercedes) dominance circumstances , HAM would lead the race . And HAM would pull a gap of 30 sec. and even more, as *Usual !

BUT !!! *Usual is now history as well...

From what we saw at Bahrain , MAX closed the 10 sec. gap and overtook HAM !
Let's keep in mind that the huge DAS advantage is history !

In other words : Over the whole race , MAX was faster .
This means ,in this season MAX will be there in every single race ...
As I said , time for a change !

Can't wait !!!!

Or the gap was 7.6 secs after Verstappens last pitstop on lap 40.
The gap was down to 1.5 secs by lap 50.
So 6 secs in 10 laps by which time Verstappen had used up his tyres at a much faster rate than Hamilton (who had pitted on lap 28)...such that Verstappen had little tyre advantage left by the time he had caught up.

The strat will be sorted at Imola,not Max's fault he was called in too early on the last one.

The problem he had with staying out longer at either stop was the time lost per lap on old tyres.
Verstappen was in trouble in the first stint when he didn't build enough of a gap to stop the undercut at Hamiltons first stop.
Either because he didn't have the performance or his strategist didn't tell him to go faster.

'didn't have the performance' this was apparent at the start. Hammy had the pedal to the metal then and hanging on for dear life to keep up.
Taps turning up at Imola so Max should be given free rein to pull a bigger gap.

I still think he would have won the race just covering scHAM. Should have pulled him in next lap after scHAM's first stop at least. So what if HAM undercut? The gap would have been small, Max was faster and would have plenty of time to set up passes. Time was his undoing!

To be honest mate, can't take you seriously with your "scHam" marlarkey.
But anyway...if MV pitted the lap after LH...now with the same (new) tyres as Hamilton, Verstappen has a 0.4 sec per lap performance advantage which is not really enough to make an easy pass (as shown at the end of the race when MV has much newer tyres than LH).
The first stint is where MV lost the race.

We’re forgetting Max’d differential issue that messed with his pace so that threw a curveball in RB’s strategy.

You can’t give Ham even a centimeter. He’ll snatch it.
