Gasly, took full advantage of what he was handed.


HM to Sainz for driving hard but not trying anything stupid.

And again demonstrating the advantage of being in clear air.

To this point, AlphaTauri has been ahead of McLaren in qualifying just
ONCE. (Gasly out-qualifying both McLaren's pretty handily at the 70th
Anniversary GP at Silverstone; who look to have been off form for that
qualifying)

How that must have stung to finally get that close without one more lap
to give it a go.

Nah, Gasly was unbeatable because he was in clear air 😊

Nope. Pointing out a reality of modern F1 racing.

You really are quite simple about this stuff...

...aren't you?

Quick: How many times this year has an AlphaTauri outqualified a McLaren?

... and maybe had the same amount of boost left to use up.

Look... ...it's talked about in pretty much every F1 broadcast:

Running too close to the car in front has become impossible.

The observant will have notice many occasions where a following car
suddenly understeers when it hits the turbulent wake of the car in front.

Hell: they're changing the rules package SPECIFICALLY to reduce the
effect of the wake on cars following.

One more lap with an empty battery.

Probably... ...but any driver worth his salt is going to at least
believe he could make it happen from that close.
