A second place that a Max Verstappen all in all it’s okay, because the Portimao Sunday Mercedes gave the impression of being too fast, at least in Hamilton’s hands.
The chronicle of the GP of Portugal
Look at Barcelona but the track limits …
A 2nd place without the point of the fastest lap, removed at the end of the race and finished in Bottas. But Max did not make controversy, thus analyzing his race: “It was a decent race, albeit we lacked a bit of pace. I made a good restart, I tried to put pressure on Valtteri, but Lewis managed to pass me and after the pit stop I think it was difficult to warm up the tires. Once we got into second place it was clear that we lacked a bit of pace compared to them.
Finishing seconds and with the fastest lap is not bad … Ah, they took it away from me? Strange, they didn’t check the track limits before, but that’s okay. The weekend was a bit strange in terms of grip, we couldn’t get over the car, let’s see if we can do it in Barcelona. However, I hope that rthey end up smarter in the future, more old school. Because then no one will play with track limits anymore, they put gravel for example. I lost pole and fastest lap, yes, sometimes life is like that. I won’t sleep less because of this“.
