Nah, Ham had the pace, he was faster all the time on comparable tyres, except the first stint he was behind Sainz. If the race ran as normal M** had to overtake both of them again. If either safety car came out at an appropriate time instead of waiting a lap for him to get to the pits it would have been over for him.Verstappen got lucky today with the safety car BUT he would have won anyway, he was waaaaaaaay faster than HAM or RUS, we saw it on how VER passed by RUS without any problem. This is the kind of superiority that made me stop watching F1 a few years ago when HAM's mercedes was unstoppable... this year is definitely VER's RB. Even in circuits where the RB is not supposed to be superior he still is the fastest car in the track.
I was expecting more from the change of rules... well, as usual, I get excited for nothing
Like Italy 2019, race director wanted to leave the track alive.
