I think it has shown that in some cases the rules do allow you to use different strategies and still be close to winning. If Bottas had a couple extra tenths per lap from lap 59 he probably would have won. Didn’t really get many shots at over taking but it was close.
Reminds me of races from the 80’s slightly. You can take different strategies and it is still possible to overtake and work your through the pack, you don’t just get stuck behind cars. This time I think the track had a lot to do with it but it made the race far more interesting, not every overtake has to be super dramatic or even very difficult, if people are in different race phases.
Also was “fuel saving” mentioned once? Again could be a track specific reason but still nice to not hear it much.
I was 2 feet above the couch for those last two laps. To be fair, Ferrari got lucky on this one. Well defended by Seb on absolutely no tire left, but that Merc was so much faster towards the end. I'm happy though!
Just wish Kimi could've finished too. Watched the replay over a few times from the pitlane, and that leg just snaps right off. Poor man! What happended there with the go-signal for Kimi? Did he get it?
