With all due respect, I beg to disagree.

By your logic, all drivers are putting their cars in danger of being hit by a faster moving car from behind or in danger of hitting a slower moving car in front who misses a gear. Whether or not, a car you are trying to overtake will under or over-steer should not be your lookout. You see a gap, you go for it regardless of the assumptions that the other car might do this or that.
But again, much easier for a couch potato like me to talk In the heat of the moment, who know who will do what.

Leclerc should have been shown the black and white flag, that debris from Leclerc car would have been as fast a bullet, lucky for Lewis it only took out his right side mirror and also no one suffered punctures.

Lewis had 70% tire left when he pitted a second time, I think that cost him 2nd position. Not sure how accurate those new tire life graphics are.

Despite the aero upgrades, mercedes still has no answer to ferrari straight line speed.
