Looks more like a bad lap vs a regular lap. Both had a lot of mistakes and went back and forth. Mercedes car was just too dominant.

Finally an analysis that understands the traction control affected by stabs of throttle and brake. Learned these physics playing GT relentlessly. The Real Driving simulator indeed, it gets car physics better than any rival sim.

Toto: 4 great laps in a row. It seems you need some tires problems in the pit, Bottas

Even during his "great lap" Bottas can't catch a break!

Valtteri Bottas is a better Mercedes driver and person than Russel will ever be.
Astro Pirms Mēneša
Not a formula one driver but he made alot of mistakes one his 'great lap' compared to Hamilton's or perez's great lap
1xRacer Pirms Mēneša
would love to see this as a new series !!! the difference is incredibly small. This displays driver skill which is currently lacking in today's broadcast.

This just proves that even though Bottas isn’t performing in the 2021 car he still has talent. I really do hope Mercedes thinks about the move. I hate so say it but I feel like a bottas + Russell driver lineup will be the best for them to right against red bull!

Hopefully Merc gives Bottas the support he needs this weekend. Wishing for a Bottas podium this weekend. His Merc failed him last year after he survived Lewis almost running him off the track in turn 1 on the start.

The calendar this year is not gentle enough for me... 3 races in a row and I will be in work during 2 in Austria but I can easily watch the most boring one that exists... I don't know my further schedule but if it goes like this I can imagine that I'll probably miss out on Monza, Spa and other legendary circuits but will be able to see Sochi... Disappointing... :-(

powerofdreamx Pirms Mēneša
Is it just me or did this seem to be rather chastising of Bottas compared to other reviews or is Bottas completely driving each lap differently plus the focus is to highlight the quickest techniques at fault...

@Evgeny Tretyakov yes, as the commentator said he went a little wide in turn 1, and he had to lift the accelerator, he made a mistake i think it’s turn 5 when he had to lift a little his foot from the power and needed to correct with understeer and another mistake is in the long slow left hander i think turn 13

I think it should have been called “messed up lap vs okay lap” lol
Adam Petten
Adam Petten Pirms Mēneša
@Jon speed is the point. A 0.8 second slower lap is much much worse. Would have put him behind Verstappen. You don't know the difference between choices and mistakes. Your very poor aesthetic analysis misses the point completely. Using the curbs doesn't look's faster. He was 0.3 behind when he's usually 0.1 behind or faster. Still 0.3 behind magnificent Hamilton is still excellent and similar to Button. Jenson would look pretty but would be the same distance behind Lewis. Valterri poled 18 times against Lewis.
Sr. Hughes
Sr. Hughes Pirms Mēneša
@Jon ok,so that means 19 laps were trash. What a joke you are
Jon Pirms Mēneša
@Master Ticcu I can show you plenty examples of "great" laps if you've never seen one..?
Jon Pirms Mēneša
​@Master Ticcu No it doesn't. But I guess it's what you define as great. A great lap to me is when it's near perfect i.e. no mistakes, you're hitting all the apexs, you're carrying speed through the corners, you get outperform your nearest rival and you do it in style. Bottas' "great" lap was neither of those imo. I actually thought his slower lap was better if it wasn't for the mistakes.
Master Ticcu

@Jon P2 means you had a great lap.

@Hamza Chaudhry He was fastest on the day.. Don't forget that the drivers have 2 laps in Q3 to get their best lap.. The pressure is immense. It's not as if the driver can go lap after lap after lap.. If he made no mistakes, It would mean that he wasn't at the limit and would have likely have been slower as the corners that he made no mistakes, would have still been much slower and the corners that mistakes were made, would likely have been the same speed.
Hamza Chaudhry
Hamza Chaudhry Pirms Mēneša
With the amount of mistakes he made in his great lap, it doesn't seem all that great

Basically in two corners he made most of the difference, and lost part of the difference in most of the other corners lol
