Lead driver gets the call.
Which makes sense because otherwise the lead driver would have to come in earlier than anticipated purely to stop the guy behind getting an advantage.
Happened in china last year too, tough luch, be the one ahead.
lead driver getting call is understandable, but it is something that needs to be revisited and tweaked.
It is a terrible thing if it means destroying the race of the 2nd driver, it almost did in China ....and basically cost them a place this race.
Had they pit Lewis two laps earlier and told him to conserve or both of them one lap earlier, they would have still been fine. But having him drive too many laps with his tires over the cliff just so Jenson can pit optimally is a bit of bullshit.
Jenson conserves his tires better, so whenever they make sure Lewis pits AFTER him in the first stint...his races are almost always ruined.
Lewis can avoid this by outqualifying and getting better starts... but he cant everytime and there will be more days like today. With the field being quite close, they could easily ruin his WDC fight with this rubbish strategy call.
They are basically forcing Lewis to conserve tires like Jenson, which is against everything in his instincts that brought him to F1 and got him a world championship.
It is pure bullsh*t
