That was an interesting race.
Ferrari again making weird decisions.
According to Leclerc, the plan was for him to give Vettel a tow past Hamilton at the start to give Ferrari the advantage of first and second. Which looked like it worked.
It appears though that Vettel, who has form for lacking scruples, refused to hand back the lead that Leclerc lost in helping him to pass Hamilton.
That, combined with his subsequent retirement, pretty much handed the Mercs a 1,2 and left Leclerc in 3rd.
It all begs the question, what are Ferrari doing? Leclerc is unquestionably now outperforming Vettel, so why are they continuing to compromise Leclerc in order to give Vettel a helping hand?

Because Leclerc is paid 3.5M and Vettel is paid 45M

Great win by Hamilton, though luck did play in their path!!....

Seem,s like Ferrari are running out of juice, with reliable issues... Ferrari had to increase their engine mode, while Mercedes just cruised home. Expect reliability issues for Ferrari towards the end. ;)
