LH staying out. Can he catch Crashie on knackered rubber or has the tyre now changed sufficiently that it runs better than a new tyre?
Strategy guy is a computer prediction,Oh dear its all gone wrong for LH. I suspect the pit crew are removing all the teddies to somewhere safe and hidden any sharp objects. Rumour is that the strategy guy is already heading for the airport.
GR has gone off the boil of late. I suspect that the Merc contract in his back pocket may have lulled him into a sense of false security.I'm still not getting this 'Russell is the Second Coming: all hail!'.
The Boy Norris has just wrung a decent Q2 out of his (really rather indifferent) car and George can only manage a fairly indifferent P13.
Fck me! even Tsunoda made it to Q3 . . .
I think to finish further up the order LH had to come in 3-5 laps before any of those in front of him pitted, so he could get through the early graining stage and be up to speed as the others went into the pit.A good review of yesterday's race by the BBC's Andrew Benson here. The conclusion being LH should have come in for tyres when he was told to, and after he did pit he went too hard on the new tyres trying to catch CLC which caused the graining:
Now little boy Horner is sat in his corner whingeing 'cos the narsty Mercs went faster than he thinks they should.
The rotters eh?
