00:54

hard work but just when it came to to

00:57

lir wasn't intimidated and this is when

01:01

it comes down to knowing your

01:03

competitors if that was Max for Staffing

01:05

alongside Charles lir Max would have

01:07

just run the car a little bit wider

the line as around the outside goes

01:27

Oscar piastri on Fernando Alonzo to take

01:30

01:39

battle for second place he's diving to

01:41

the inside and Sergio Perez finds his

01:45

way by with the first opportunity that

was going to take second place on lap

01:50

number one lap number four he's got 2.1

01:53

seconds between him and his teammate in

01:55

02:06

barriers and out of the race hit theall

02:09

okay can you bring it back l no I'm in

02:11

the wall all copy

02:14

that easy to criticize difficult to do

02:18

but he isn't a rookie

02:21

yeah everyone is coming into the pits

02:23

this is going to be so busy they're

02:25

going to stick on a hard set of tires

02:26

and maybe try and go to the end from

02:28

here really long long ranging one

02:30

stopper crucially gets out before the

02:32

Ferrari and in this situation there'll

02:34

be no no question of unsafe release yeah

02:38

and Perez flung into the path of

02:40

Fernando Alonso as it is incredibly

02:44

frantic stuff down there in the pit Lane

02:47

oh I nearly crash with a Red Bull so

02:50

close Sergio Perez gets a 5sec penalty

02:54

for an unsafe

02:56

release Here We Go Again it is very

02:59

tight between osar pastri and charlot

03:01

Clair for fourth Lando Norris leads then

03:03

it's Max stappen and that is very tight

03:06

as charlot Clair stays ahead and fends

03:08

off the Australian driver Alonzo trying

03:10

to profit from it in the green Aston

03:12

Martin has he got momentum to try and

03:14

retake the place that he lost from

03:15

pastri earlier in the race the answer is

03:17

no and they're close but there's no

03:19

change for

03:21

position side by side Alban goes that is

03:24

a tap that is damage and oon profited

03:27

what is he doing Kevin magson has been

03:30

given a 10-second time

03:33

penalty this is the bmer move little

03:36

dummy shimmy to the inside go on then I

03:38

like that I like that expression the

03:40

bearman

03:43

move Max is staing in the unusual

03:46

position of being in second place not

03:48

for long Max ven moves past and takes

03:52

the lead from Lando Norris he's back in

03:54

the lead of the race and he's not the

03:56

only Red Bull on the Move Perez improves

03:58

the Third

04:01

Charlotte Clair tried to go past Lewis

04:02

Hamilton outside line to the inside line

04:04

got to be brave to make that work is the

04:06

room there is and that's a great angle

04:08

to show you that getting to the Apex

04:10

first has worked for the lead Ferrari

04:12

driver in the race he's 1.7 seconds away

04:15

from Serio

04:17

Perez he's going to have a good

04:19

opportunity now to build up through the

04:21

gears to try and make his way by the H

04:25

is in the way but only for the moment

04:27

that's the pass he's been looking for

04:28

and the man on debut in Formula 1 is up

04:30

to

04:32

nth Kevin Magnuson has been given a

04:34

10-second time penalty for leaving the

04:36

track and gaining an

04:38

advantage oh you are kidding me aren't

04:41

you 10 seconds for that that's

04:44

harsh and the chance of a safety car

04:47

with these four brawling in the way that

04:50

they are well it goes up when they go

04:52

side by side cod's been looking for that

04:54

pass lap after lap Magnuson doesn't want

04:57

to give it up brilliant racing from the

04:59

pair of them Magnuson knows that he's

05:01

not going to score a point in the race

05:02

that is Defiance and it's cost Yuki Coda

05:05

because estan oon finally gives Alpine

05:08

something to smile about so this drive

05:11

from Magnuson is going to earn h a point

05:13

because hulkenberg at the end of this

05:15

lap should have a pit stop window to

05:17

come in and clear his teammate whoa

05:20

that's a send and a half for Alexander

05:23

Alin patience ran out at turn number one

05:26

it's only 14th but it looked great on

05:29

board Yuki Coda will not want to go

05:31

backwards the driver who started in

05:33

ninth position on the grid is passed

05:36

again as hulkenberg comes into the pits

05:39

we talked of that pit window a few

05:41

moments ago and hulkenberg is going to

05:44

blend out onto the racetrack and H might

05:47

have engineered a chance to get

05:49

hulkenberg into the

05:52

point we've had plenty of chapters of

05:54

this battle time and time again this is

05:56

the best run for Oscar piastri through

05:59

the the entire race and Hamilton's

06:01

defense comes to an end or does it

06:03

piastri locks up takes the place won't

06:06

be able to overtake like that he had the

06:08

momentum he had the over speed but he

06:11

couldn't slow down the McLaren and still

06:14

they battle over fifth

06:17

place bman if he keeps this consistency

06:19

he's actually just done his best lap of

06:20

the race he's only 10th and a half

06:22

slower than Norris absolutely cracking

06:24

drive this from Oly bman and no

06:26

struggling a bit with tires there he's

06:28

fighting with amton as well we can do it

06:30

great encouragement for the British

06:32

driver 18 years of age looking for

06:35

points in debut in Formula

06:37

1 this was Daniel Ricardo running in

06:41

16th Place and round he goes clouting an

06:44

apex cve rear tires that were probably

06:46

on the limit

06:48
