We aren't talking about what you would base the championship on though are we?
Well, I don't know. You said you wouldn't base "anything" on it, so I was poking a spot of fun with a request for clarification
Do you think Red Bull suddenly thought Perez was getting the better of Max because he was ahead of him in the standings for a bit earlier in the year?
That was after the 3rd race (Australia) alone, wasn't it? Correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't George been ahead of Lewis in the championship since the end of race 2? And has finished ahead of Lewis at 4 of the 5 races held so far?
As I said, I don't think this tells the whole story. As you noted we've had safety cars throw things for a loop. But at some point you might have to wonder if George isn't doing a slightly better job overall than Lewis and that's why he's leading him in the standings?
