MW (laps 51-70): Thanks, chaps. I'll bring this home. Put the champers on ice, eh?
DR: Max is a proper gent. But he's far too busy to write anything, so allow me to sum up his stint for you. It starts with the bravest pit exit of the day, brushing the tyre stacks on the way out. By the end of the straight, he's flung open a door, which allows him to hang a buttock outside of the car. Here's a man who takes weight distribution extremely seriously. It pays off, and his second lap is our quickest. He clips every apex. Even mows grass to shave a few seconds here and there.
