Isola: The range of strategies turned out to be very wideApril 1, 2019
Asphalt on the circuit Sahir the most abrasive among the tracks included in the world championship, and the proper use of rubber at the Bahrain Grand Prix traditionally plays a big role. So this time, contrary to custom, no one managed to complete the distance with one pit stop – the only pilot who had the chance to do it was Daniel Riccardo, but he got off for a few laps before the finish.
Mario Isola, the head of the auto racing unit “As Lewis Hamilton said, Charles Leclaire deserved victory today, and his problems became part of a truly dramatic and unpredictable Grand Prix, in which strategy played a key role.
And in Ferrari, and in Mercedes, they calculated the time of changing tires so as to try to beat each other, but the advantage in speed Lecler allowed him to spend the second pit stop, without losing leadership.
A wide range of strategies was used – in fact, only two teams used the same tactics for both their pilots. Behind the leaders, we saw several outstanding performances, as in the case of Lando Norris, who earned his first points at McLaren. ”
