Mercedes’ strategy prediction was “way off” – Bottas | 2019 British Grand Prix

But Lewis Hamilton successfully switched to a one-stop strategy during a Safety Car period, while Bottas was locked into pitting twice because he used the same tyre compounds for his first two stints.
Valtteri Bottas: “That’s why our theoretical quickest way to the flag was medium/medium/hard.”
Valtteri Bottas: “But that was obviously way off.”
“But it obviously proved out Lewis in the end was on the best strategy.”
Valtteri Bottas: “Even though I lost the lead through the Safety Car I still would have had to stop again and Lewis was at that point on the hard tyre, he could carry on still.”
“The pace was good,” Valtteri Bottas said.
