Article is very clear. But I have two doubts.

Doubt 1:
Asssume that client got the ipc at 1pm with lease time of 1hr. So, Till 2pm we can use this ip. now the client will request again at 1.30pm for renewal. Now again assume that we got one hr in this renewal process. Here comes my question is, already we have acess for the time 1.30pm to 2pm. Now after renewal(1 hr). So now our ip is allowed till 3pm or time reset from 1.30pm to 2.30 pm ?? 

If our ip is allowed only till 2.30 then looks like we got only half an hour extra time(from 2pm to 2.30pm). 

Doubt 2:
In the DHCP paylod, we have client Identifer field(option 51) & also Client Hardware address. For DHCP Request we are filling client MAC in both place. What is the specific purpose. 

If no specific reason, then wy we need to fill twice??

Could you clarify my doubt?
