He made a mistake on the SC restart with a lock up in the last turn, luckily he only had a McLaren behind him. For some reason he was doing some crazy warmup after Lewis had bolted and locked up when sweeping back onto the racing line, seemed unnecessary.
Cold tyres probably, he was on a harder compound. To be clear, I don’t think Max should be rated higher, just saying his race is a bit hard to rate given the (lack of) competitiveness of the Red Bull (slower than Merc and Ferrari but way faster than the midfield) and having a rookie team mate who just stepped into the car. You’ll never get higher than eights in such position.
