Weirdly Lewis thinks that it’s easy to overtake in France. Which is odd because everyone else thinks it’s close to impossible. This is probably because he managed to go from 19th to 5th in last years GP2. Obviously overtaking in GP2 is very different from F1. But Lewis knows what he feels and maybe he’ll be right?
I wonder if that belief might allow him to let Alonso go for the lighter fuel strategy? Might that be a mistake from an inexperienced rookie trying to show he does have some experience?
