Mercedes made a bad call on the first pit stop, choosing not to pit Lewis before Max.

Either way, it would have been tough for Merc to beat the Red Bull, but Mercedes is making mistakes of being the slower car, and it should be the aggressor, not playing to try not to lose.

They needed to make the 2 stops, but the loss of time in the first one determined the race, making it Max' race from the moment he got ahead of Lewis.

Red Bull has the better car, consistently so far, but it is a long season, and Lewis is a driver of great patience and intelligence. It isn't over, yet.

Red Bull has the better car, consistently so far, but it is a long season, and Lewis is a driver of great patience and intelligence. It isn't over, yet.

Will it only be over when Mercedes and Hamilton win everything again for the 9th season running? You sound like F1 being cursed to have Mercedes win everything forever after is a good thing?

This "early season" winning streak by RBR will end just as soon as Max breaks clear of Hamilton by 25 points in the championship. Suddenly, just like that, Mercedes will develop 50 extra horsepower(!) and dominate qualifying and the races. Oh and Bottas will be allowed his yearly 2 wins at the end of the season after Hamilton has sewn up the championship.

What a depressing clown show.... yet again.

Next two races at Red Bull's home circuit in Austria. RB were strong there last year. The dynamics have definitely changed this year.

I would hope so, but I won't believe this until the season is over and Verstappen is champion.
