Pretty terrible strategy there. Guaranteeing yourself a stop that others won't have to make. Only works if you 100% know you won't have any traffic (which he would, because Lewis was there, nevermind Max!) and if you know you can manage the tyres perfectly. Which they don't tend to be able to do.

Throwing away a title with terrible strategy indeed.

When Alonso was driving with Ferrari, they would make these terrible strategy calls and throw away the race.

Title chances were pretty much gone after Vettel's mistake in Germany anyway.

Yeah, this is a long term Ferrari problem. Vettel is only doing as well as Alonso managed. So far it does seem that Ferrari themselves aren't capable of winning a title, even if Vettel didn't make the mistakes he does.

Remember when Ferraris terrible strategy put Alonso behind Petrov for a whole race, allowing Seb to steal the title? Good example of what your point!

They were, but one unlucky DNF could've brought it back, but only if they can beat Mercedes on track. They seem determined not to do that.

The Mercedes is the better car though, no matter what English journalists want to make you believe.

There are 6 races to after this one, so yes I would agree with that. Today would be a good time to for Lulu to have a DNF, as far as Vettee is concerned.

Congrats to Lewis, a commanding performance all weekend. Ferrari have only themselves to blame for that strategy call. A mature drive by Verstappen.

Situations like this, where Ferrari have completely screwed the strategy and are forcing drivers to either go slowly or take another stop is where you need a strong #2. Where exactly was Bottas today?
