Lewis Hamilton insists that it wasn’t safety car deployment the reason he won the British GP, Hamilton insists it was his one-stop strategy that did it.
“I was going to do one-stop strategy,” said Hamilton
“Bottas were in a different strategy, he was on a two-stops,”
“The safety car wouldn’t have made any difference,”
“When Bottas pitted on lap 16, my plan was to stay out as much as I could,” said Lewis.
“At the time he was not catching me, I was keeping the gap the same,”
“I would have come out on my fresh hards and I could have just sat behind Bottas, and he would have to pit, so would still have had that 21 second gap at the end,” added Lewis Hamilton.
