Interesting comparison about the laps led so far and one can only assume that the others will start to lead some more laps as the season progresses with improving cars and strats.

Horner states that Mercedes have spent a great deal of their budget on the 14's latest upgrades and are under pressure to perform.

Interviewer facing Toto Wolff after the 2023 Spanish GP with the fact that currently the 2023 F1 universe features two worlds: planet Max Verstappen with his RB19 and the rest of the field ('best of the rest'):
  • Interviewer: "But Toto, you [Mercedes] were 'best of the rest' today. Clearly that race pace of the [Mercedes] car is fantastic."
  • Toto Wolff: "Bringing us back on earth, yeah ?! best of the rest ..."
  • Interviewer: "I mean, it's a big step forward. The race pace today [of the Mercedes] was lightning-quick."
Last Mercedes F1 victory: Dec 5, 2021 (2021 Saudi Arabian GP). No race win since the controversial 2021 Abu Dhabi GP (Dec 12, 2021).

Correct. Russell secured a victory for Mercedes.

With the latest Mercedes upgrades, Lewis seems to have a chance too to get Mercedes a victory this season if Max has an off-day or DNF.

Strange ..As far as I know, drives Jos with a Dutch license plate .

Maybe he was in Belgium for business and the M was a Belgian rental car.

But Jos is regularly seen in Belgium for his Rally driver competition ..

Many warnings made by drivers about this and that but former IndyCar racer Hinchcliffe 'Hinch' commented if any warning to the others was worth its weight in gold then it is without doubt from Verstappen.
Asking who had the FL nearing race end and being told it was Checo, Max pulverised Checo's time by 3/10's on older tires and without DRS on the last lap.
The reality of the situation is that Merc and AM are only on a wing and a prayer to even think of catching Max (and hopefully an improved Checo).
