Anyone want to continue saying Perez is a legitimate championship contender?
The way I see it, Russell moved to the right, creating a gap wide enough for Hamilton. Hamilton assumed he did that to let him by. In fact Russell didn't even know he was there (fault of bad communication by the team), and turned back into Lewis.At the start of both doing hotlaps there isn't space, the gap was always going to close with the Ferrari on the right. Lack of awareness from Hamilton and poor communication from Mercedes to it's drivers.
