It would have been better for Mercedes as Hamilton was the faster driver today. But it would have been unfair on Russell. I like that Mercedes always give their drivers equal fairness unlike a certain team.Hamilton was all over him for a few laps. There wouldn't have been too much time lost making the switch. Hamilton seemed like he had more pace at the end.
I've often done this as well. It's because when you're following someone directly from behind, you're not looking at the apex or anything else - you're looking at the car in front and using it as a reference for your trajectory.Car in front makes a mistake, I make exactly he same with equal or worse consequences.
