"Not having a car to race..."
Whilst this was publicised before the race, it was also the general consensus of opinion amongst the various presenters across Sky and the BBC, that the Mercedes would most likely go backwards. Remembering that Mercedes missed the Young Driver Test with these new tyres, it is not completely incomprehensible that Lewis genuinely thought he would go backwards as has been the case for the season to date.
It was a race into the unknown for Mercedes nevertheless a controlled drive, with aggression when required, has given Lewis an elusive win with Mercedes. In all honesty dispatching Button was key. Had Seb not taken so long to pass Button it may have been a different story. Nevertheless it is what it is. Slightly more concerned with just what is going on at Ferrari. Onwards to Spa!!
