Stevietpfl: Leclerc, Perez, Hamilton
Which useful trend or statistic stuck out most during your research?
ebeimfohr: This track is very difficult to overtake with almost no straights, so it’s going to be a pace and strategy race.
Stevietpfl: The drivers continue to talk about how hard it is to overtake on this track. Lando Norris said he hopes this is the most difficult race in the history of F1 to overtake.
How will you try to best differentiate yourself from the rest of the field?
ebeimfohr: Verstappen had a horrible qualifying, and while he is a threat to win every single race, I think this is the one race where we want to avoid him. While that leads to Leclerc and Ferrari in “optimal” lineups, I think Mercedes has had the pace this week match them, and their strategy can easily beat Ferrari, so being heavy on Mercedes is the key for me.
Stevietpfl: For the first time this season, I’m going to be underweight on Max Verstappen. He was on pole pace during Q3, but they called him into the pits because he was basically running out of fuel. He mentioned in his interview it was going to be a frustrating behind cars and not being able to pass. I’m going to focus on teammates with the better starting positions this weekend.
What is your hot take of the week?
ebeimfohr: Lewis Hamilton gets out to an early lead and cruises to a victory.
Stevietpfl: Sergio passes Leclerc on lap 1 and dominates the race.
