Pit Stop Transcription

So, lads, let’s start with today’s race winner, Sir Lewis Hamilton claiming his 100th win in the sport. His fifth win around Sochi. In the end, he won by over 50 seconds, but Phil, that does not tell the story at all. He had a fantastic battle today with Lando Norris for the majority of the race, and he had to really make some ground up after a poor start. Yeah, it was a crazy race for sure, George. I mean, it isn’t the usual… It was the usual kind of Russian Grand Prix, after the start, DRS trains and the whole bit, but there was so much action that went on. It was Lewis trying to get back up after the… Okay, not a great start. Got back up, got blocked, came back, having to do all that, an extra stop in coming from tail back. You have Lando and Carlos battling each other. Carlos, having to pit and starting the whole… Well, he didn’t start it, but it started that whole train of guys with the undercuts and how that affected the race. I mean, it was really an interesting race. It was not what most people, I would assume, expected, including me. I also didn’t expect Lewis, on the way things were going this weekend, to get this victory. I think I’d said it on my show, or I think I might have said it here, jokingly, that it’s like, “Oh, yeah, Lewis is probably going to go and get number 100 in Mother Russia.” Well, he did, but it wasn’t straightforward, and he could tell that it, I mean, it hasn’t sunk in, of course, it’s too early, but what he had to do to race against Lando. He caught him on dry tires, but couldn’t get past him, same way as he struggled behind Daniel Ricciardo earlier in the race, and then, that rain really just threw the dice. It was like a dice roll and Bono and company made the right call and gave Lewis the opportunity to get those enters and go at that 100th victory, which was unbelievable to say the least.
