Verstappen’s tactic to smear Hamilton’s nose in Sochi

This next Sunday, Verstappen change your engine Sling on Russia and he will come out last and all this to compromise his options this weekend against Hamilton, which has the fastest car in Sochi and aim for pole, or almost, if the rain gives a truce and a qualifying can be held on Saturday.

On Red bull there are several options: you will have one mechanics fresh for the decisive phase and limits the incidence of his penalty on the grid for the accident of Monza or from the back of the grid the risk of an accident soars and another painful zero in the classification can tip the title towards Sir Lewis.

In the morning, Max rode less than anyone else despite the good feeling: they had problems in the MGU-K and preparations had begun to replace the power unit. It is the fourth for the Dutchman, only three are allowed per year and as a rule, he has to start from the last position on the grid.

Likewise, Bottas was the fastest in free practice, nothing new in his fetish circuit. The Finn was 44 thousandths ahead of Mercedes number ’44’ and by just over two tenths of Gasly with the Alpha Tauri, before the Frenchman crashed and detached himself from the front wing.

According to all this, Red Bull focused on Verstappen’s race runs because it only takes a fast lap on Saturday to qualify, the Dutchman thus setting the sixth best time. Ahead, Norris and Ocon, with good speed. Behind, Sainz and Alonso, seventh and eighth respectively.
