Bottas said that Hamilton had told him during the team's post-race briefing that he had been pushing as hard as he could and the Briton confirmed that shortly afterwards."To get as close as Justin Verlander Youth jersey I was showed I had good pace," Hamilton said, "but when you get to within 1.1-1.2secs the car just loses grip. I did a lot of rallying today."
Hamilton did indeed have good pace; he took http://www.authenticnewyorkmets.com/Mookie-Wilson-Jersey 0.7secs out of Bottas on his first flying lap after his pit stop, but the Finn always did just enough to hold him off.Hamilton was somewhat confused as to how he came out behind after his pit stop on lap 24, having been told he was 1.7secs up before it, but the key to that was Bottas setting a new fastest lap, fully 0.8secs faster than he had been on the previous tour.
After that, the difficulties created by a track that has two long straights to facilitate overtaking, but wrecks it by then having a twisty final sector that features corner after corner that accentuates the fundamental flaws of the current F1 cars.
"A race like today is not the best advert for Formula 1," said Red Bull team boss Christian Horner. "We're better than that. Of course, it's only one event and there have been some great races this year."
The drivers warned before the season that the new rules, which introduced wider cars with much more downforce, would make overtaking more difficult, and they have returned to the point over and over again during the season.
They are right, of course. But on balance F1 2017 has been a step forward over the years that immediately preceded it.The wider cars - back to the size they were before they were narrowed for the 1998 season - have returned F1 machines to the muscular proportions that made them so attractive before that.The cars are not only more dramatic but visibly faster and more exciting to watch, both for aficionados and casual fans.
Their greater speed - cornering speeds are up by about 20mph in the faster corners - has returned the joy of driving back to the men who do it, and who are the reason most of the fans tune in to watch in the first place.
The wider tyres have also helped the aesthetics, and supplier Pirelli has more or less met its targets in producing tyres that Authentic Nail Yakupov Jersey have allowed the drivers to push much harder throughout races.That in itself has made the racing much more authentic, which has been one of the biggest single improvements this season.
Watching a grand prix, one now knows that these are the best drivers in the world driving the fastest cars more or less as fast as they can go, rather than tootling about lapping seconds off the pace to manage stint lengths as they had been from 2011-16.
The tyres are not perfect - they still require a little too much thermal management, and they could do with being softer, as long as that http://www.officiallosangeleskings.com/Adidas-Marian-Gaborik-Jersey does not mean losing their push-on characteristics - but as a first step in the right direction it has been a major positive.
