So then, what about yesterday's race pace? Was it all a fluke? Or did Mercedes opt, like at many other previous GPs, for a race-biased setup (useless at Singapore)?
It might be real, the question is if it helps.
If it continues like this, this could prove a terrible decision. Ferrari seems like the faster car in both fast and slow tracks. The 2019 championships may tighten up significantly.
The championship is in the bag, dont kid yourself. Even today Hamilton managed P2 and might even win tomorrow. Plus Singapore has often thrown unexpected results anyway.
2020 is a different matter, but Mercedes stopped developing since July, whether that was the wise decision is a different question.
Merc still the car off the year, but Leclerc the driver...
With a bunch of major mistakes? Yeah, no.
Also, you already dumped Max?
