I'm not sure the McLaren dual pit stop was a mistake, granted it was risky but no-one expected a safety car and you can't strategize based on the premise that there could be a safety car else you'll never pit. I think Hamilton was just unlucky (not saying Vettel was gifted anything but just Hamilton was unlucky).
