    Lewis Hamilton flat spotted a tyre on his hot lap, he has to start on this damaged rubber but the commentators, as well as Lewis himself at the press conferance, said they will be able to balance the tyre to make it good again.

    What exactly will they do? Beat it into shape, heat it up and remold it?

    And what will it’s performance be like tomorrow?

    Hopefully it holds up. :P

    Put a wheel weight on the rim as counter weight.

    That will cancel out some of the vibration.
