what’s the point of holding off a much quicker car with DRS? You’re defenseless anyway, so why trying to hold off?
The rain is another story. Never forget the constant G-forces, the concentration where he needs to go through every lap with a dry circuit (if you can read my topic about the drivers body to know what it really is to drive an F1 car for the human body). If the circuit is wet and there’s only 1 dry line, it’s verry VERRY easy to lose control over the car. Seb was a bit driving in the wet at the last lap, therefore he lost it all. Also, don’t forget that he was leading the race from the 1st lap untill the lap before the last lap. Tyres were also going off verry quickly as you all know that tyrecontrol is nessecairy in Canada
There are so many factors which any team needs to get right for a race. Car needs to be fast and DRS and KERS need to work, setup needs to be the right 1, driver needs to be fit, the feeling of the driver needs to be good, the tyres need to be good,…
Don’t know who said this but remember this quote: “The car may be the fastest on the grid, BUT somebody has to drive it over the line in one piece.”
