He didn't get out for fast lap. Apparently if they didn't come out, Koba would be ahead of them in Q3, even without registering a lap. I thought that if they didn't set time in Q3 they would be left with their Q2 lap?
Mercedes are hopeless. When they know that they do not want to set fast lap but just come out to stay ahead of Koba, why didn't they come out earlier and leave it that late??? Idiots. Only because MS got past Hamilton (who was sleeping) that he was able to make it before the chequered flag.
EDIT: Just heard MS saying he was set to do a fast lap, which is strange because he could not have done better than 7th anyway.
