The result meant Red Bull’s Max Verstappen was able to retake the lead of the championship standings by six points heading to Austin in a fortnight’s time for the USA Grand Prix.

And with just six races remaining, tensions are high on both sides of the fence, but Button believes if Hamilton had pitted when the team initially called him in, the gamble would’ve paid off.

“He’s also probably thinking back to last year,” said the 2009 World Champion. “He stayed out on a tyre last year for a very long period of time, and it worked for him – but it’s not always going to work for you.

“It looked like it was going to [work], and I’m sure Red Bull were thinking: ‘Wow, okay, if he does get to the end, they’ve done a really good job’, and he’s made it work before.

“The car had a lot of downforce on it around here, he was able to look after the tyres better than anyone, so it might have worked.”
