Sam Michael recommends a ‘heavy duty’ wet tyre for the rare occasion when you have conditions like we had in Japan on Saturday.
He feels watching boats sail down the pit lane is good for all of 30 seconds, but not an hour. I’m inclined to agree.
Seems like a good suggestion, although one wonders what the amount of water 10-12mm of tread would look like whilst it was bucketing down. I can’t imagine you’d be able to see your hands when following another car let alone much of the track.
Sam says ‘at least it would be something’
