I agree with you that the Merc strategy team needs to step up, they underestimated Maxís outlap potential especially sector 3 where he posted fastest overall for the race.

Maybe they got greedy and targeted a 1 & 2 finish and it didnít pan out for them without a safety car. They Merc appeared to have better grip than the Redbull for most of the race, due to the low downforce setup RBR was running.

It was wild watching Max pulling his right front wheel off the ground every lap in this turn.
I saw this as well during the race, but actually from Alonso in the Alpine first. Wild.
