    After the race, the Spanish racer revealed that he deliberately slowed down to keep Norris within the one-second window that gave him access to the drag reduction system (DRS) straight-line speed boost, which was a crucial tool in fending off the two Mercedes.

    “Carlos was generous in helping me get DRS. It helped my race, and also helped his. It was tough. We knew it was going to be tough as soon as the Mercedes boxed, especially with only a couple of cars for them to overtake but we’re on the podium, P2, we held them off, we did everything we needed to do and more,” the McLaren driver said.
