F1 2021 - French GP - 18-20th June


Recommended Posts

I had Bottas pole and HAM-BOT-VER but then when Verstappen smashed FP3 by 0.7 seconds I change to Verstappen pole and VER-HAM-PER with Bottas fastest lap, 0 safety cars and Gasly to finish top 8.

Well that was surprisingly good. Madness for Mercedes in the first instance that they didn't pit Hamilton on the same lap as Verstappen. Red Bull made the right call over them not just once but twice. Verstappen thoroughly deserves the lead of the championship at this stage. Hamilton has made two significant mistakes at Imola and Baku where Max hasn't really apart from the race start today and he also had 25 points robbed from him through bad luck. Don't see why Mercedes didn't pit Bottas when he fell to 4th for the fastest lap. Perhaps there was something in the Perez overtake that made them think there might be a penalty so keep Bottas within 5-10 seconds, or maybe just cracks appearing. Another very good race from Perez, it's all coming together from Red Bull's point of view.

Bottas lost his rag as they didn't follow his instructions for a 2 stop.

Also Aston Martin making a strategy work really effectively again. Alonso starting to look like he's on top of the Alpine. Don't know what happened to Ocon today. Ferrari disastrous issues with tyre wear and ending up without points. Russell has had a phenomenal race finishing 12th with no retirements, ahead of Ocon, Leclerc, both Alfa Romeos. And all my predictions were right except for the fastest lap 😎.

Great drive from both Aston Martin drivers, but especially from Lance Stroll who started from the back. 

Lando's overtake on Alonso was also great and brave.
