The funny thing is that Lewis was half a second quicker than his nearest rival in Barca when he ran out of fuel but Vettel was slower than Lewis today even though being lighter on fuel.

Lewis is truly EPIC the personification of speed

When LH didn't have enough fuel, he was on pole by more than half a second. When SV does not have enough fuel, he can't even beat his teammate.
Just saying.

locks. yes, it even gives you flexi wings! :D :D

but there was an engine problem, and this showed up on telemetry given to stewards, and they did accept this. the fuel issue came to light later. it is possible that engine was running too rich which caused overheating to engine, and also caused higher than expected fuel usage. so with seb at back of grid, rbr can safely change engine, and start on the hard tyres which are just as fast as the softs, but would allow a longer first stint.
