This shows how in the German GP Lance Stroll when from last place, a lap behind, to first place because of better timing on one pit stop and all of the safety car periods. I wondered how he did it. It was a once in a lifetime miracle:

And we go in to the summer break Hamilton and Mercedes pretty firmly in control of the top spot.

It seemed to me that Red Bull not pitting Verstappen for new tires as soon as they saw Hamilton stop was a big mistake and sort of indicated a lack of confidence in Verstappen and the car. If Verstappen had pitted the next lap, Hamilton would have been maybe 2 seconds ahead of Verstappen on track, a deficit that wasn't unassailable. As it was, Verstappen killed his tires and had to stop anyway.

Nico Rosburg is peddling a rumor that, for 2020, Bottas is out and Ocon is in.

Next race: Sept 1, Belgium at Spa.

Had the race gone on for just a few more laps, Hamilton would have put the 3rd and 4th place Ferraris a lap down.

I don't think not pitting was a lack of confidence, it was a recognition of the fact that unless you were considerably faster, it was almost impossible to pass. That's why Mercedes changed Hamilton's tires...he was slightly faster than Verstappen before the change, but it wasn't enough to make a pass.

I hope so. Hamilton needs some tougher competition.

I think RBR will replace Gasly for 2020, if they manage to find a good replacement for him.

Alonso to Mercedes,
Hulkenberg to Red Bull,
Bottas to Alfa Romeo,
Ocon to Renault,
De Vries to Haas,
Latifi to Williams.

Just would have ended the race right then and there, instead of 10 laps later.

Championship is over. Nobody will catch Lewis.

Red Bull still has a lot to play for. They're only 44 points behind Ferrari for second in the Constructors Championship, the one that pays the bills.

And Red Bull makes the move - Albon up from Toro Rosso and Gasly back down to Toro Rosso. Interesting that it was Albon and not Kvyat.
