    The team should have told him to park the car behind Nico instead.
    It would have been nearly the same as if they perfectly synchronized a double stop.

    According to AMS Hamilton left 10.4 seconds instead of the 6 that he was supposed to. If he had done as asked of him, he would have made it (he was 2.1 seconds behind Vettel after the stop).

    Is that meant to be some kind of revelation Markus? Because if you read the article (and plenty other's) that's pretty much how Lewis see's it too.

    The article doesn't specify the exact gaps, so it's not clear by how much he lost out.

    If they really were buses then he should have found a way and pass them ...

    PS. This is 2nd time i see Hamilton "crying" for something which is not true
    1st Vettel was too agressive on kerbs - he can do the same thing if he wants to
    2nd Vettel had the fastest car for 4 years - keep pointing that out keep thinking that Hamilton and u maybe win one title to the end of ur career, same goes for Alonso
