Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes engineers left ‘smiling’ after ‘annoying’ Max Verstappen | F1 | Sport
He added: “Max Verstappen started on the hard tire and as it turned out both Ferraris were behind him but were never able to challenge. He made a great start, by the time he came out of Turn 1 he was he was already three or four lengths ahead of Charles Leclerc, and he pulled away relatively quickly because in his mind the real threat was going to be Lewis Hamilton on the medium tyres.
“2.3 [seconds] 3.2 came, 3.6 came, 4.1 came, 4.4 came. And this was Max controlling the race but pulling away from Lewis. Lewis pushing as hard as average, this was a defining moment in terms of Max Verstappen winning the Mexican Grand Prix.
“If Lewis had known the tires would last to the point where he could do 21.3 on the last lap, how much faster he would have driven, how much more he would have pushing the tires over the previous 12 laps?”
