With the lacklustre performance by Bottas, I give it to the Bulls.

I don't know who deserves it. I'll have to think it over for a bit.

I feel like Red Bull failed to make the most of the opportunities they had.
They had a driver on both tire strategies and yet failed to make it past Vettel or Hamilton.

I'm quite sure they knew Ricciardo's race was lost once they saw how a few midfield starters managed their tires sets a long way into the race (Sainz, Magnussen, Vandoorne) while still maintining a good pace.
At that point they must have known it was unlikely Hamilton was going to run out of tire life (and surely Vettel).

Closing the gap after the stop and overtaking 4 cars on the same set of tires as his opponents was never going to work, was it?

Was it not an option to stay out even longer and put on hypersofts instead of supersofts?

As for Max, he was essentially on the same strategy as Vettel and Hamilton, but he was never going to get past here - on the same set of tires.

That's what I was expecting to happen.

OK, I've gone out on a bit of a limb on this one.

It might have been Mercedes but I have a few doubts about their strategy with Hamilton (although he made it work in the end) and the (minor) issues with Bottas.
It couldn't be Ferrari because one car expired.
It couldn't be Red Bull because they really cooked up Verstappen's engine settings, and also his tyre blanket temperatures in qually (according to him).
Force India did enough to keep their championship placing, but it was hardly spectacular.
I gave it to Renault because Hulkenberg qualified best of the rest and may have turned in a good result, if only. Sainz finished the race best of the rest. And the team finished the championship best of the rest.

I forgot to mention the other reason: the farewell gifts to RBR.
A yellow beret for Helmut Marko.
A Haynes workshop manual for a Honda Civic.
And something else that I have totally forgotten.

IMO no sense strategy for Ricciardo. I gave it to Mercedes!
