The distance between Hamilton/Verstappen and the rest of the field (adjusted for that last fast lap pit stop) was just sad. Ferrari looked like an also ran and the also rans just looked sad. Gasly in particular was disapointing, I had thought he was catching up after the British GP, but Germany and Hungary say otherwise.
The most startling thing was to see Hamilton lapping his own teammate - not the best of days for Bottas!
After being supportive of Bottas I'm starting to think that he just doesn't have that last 5% that
a really great driver has. He got quite stuck trying to pass midfielders while Hamilton showed the
car was well able to hunt down and pass the front runners.
For the last 20-odd laps of the race the Mercs were on similar tyres yet Bottas took ages to get
past Norris who was on hards and then got stuck behind Kimi whose medium tyres were 15 laps older
than Bottas'. Time for him to move over for Ocon methinks.
