RaceFans Round-up: We could have beaten a Mercedes with different strategy

In the round-up: Lance Stroll says he could have beaten Valtteri Bottas to the final podium place in the Hungarian Grand Prix.

What they say

Stroll qualified third but finished the race fourth behind Bottas:

There’s a lot to review. Maybe we could have made a couple of different strategy calls, pitted a lap earlier at the beginning of the race to switch from the inters to the dry tyres. But it was such a gamble. So I’ve got to review the race, there’s a lot that happened, so I’m not really sure.

But we missed a couple of opportunities. I think the podium was possible today. I think more with Bottas at the end because he managed to pit, we were expecting rain again so we are trying to stay out longer and he pitted and undercut us. So that was a bit unfortunate.

I think we definitely had the pace to hold him off for the podium. But these things happen. It’s racing, we’re got to be happy with fourth.
