Kimi was told to stay out longer than expected, although this wasn't the first time the Iceman was robbed off of what may have been a competitive finish, had it been that, inside the top three.

There was little sense in having the Finn hold track position, continuing on wearier rubber and having him pit only after lap 15. In so doing, while Raikkonen kept a fighting Verstappen at bay, holding an easy 7 second lead over the Dutch, that the Finnish driver had to anyway pit made the move little senseless as he was due to lose track position.

On the other hand, Kimi's teammate too couldn't benefit a lot from his teammate staying out. Was this another failed Ferrari overcut?
