the rain could intensify and make the slicks a bad choice, but it paid off as the rain stopped and the track started drying up. Verstappen was able to make up a lot of time and passed Perez to reclaim the lead. It was a risky strategy, but it worked out in their favor. Horner also mentioned that luck played a part, as there were many variables that could have gone wrong. Overall, it was a fantastic team performance with successful pit stops and quick decision-making.
