Quite, sometimes you just have to wonder what a team is thinking when they draft a contract, talk about counter productive.

I wonder if at the time, it was felt that Max would be more of the 2nd driver in the team, and that Daniel was the better chance for WDC.
And setting fastest laps can fit in with the overall Red Bull ethos - but does lie at odds with general F1 tactical approach.

Now that he is the No.1 in the team, I would imagine that clause will be removed for 2018.

Sounds like a good theory.

Bet that clause will cost a bit to remove.

I missed that in the commentary, but it's interesting. Vettel used to do that when he was leading by miles too. Nurse the gap, put in one or two fastest laps, then cruise again - and then get told off on the radio.

Depends. If you have two of them then it's problematic.
