Can I bring my stat out again? Pretty please? 16-3 on pace last year?
I think today was a pretty strange day for Hamilton, even on the slower tyres he was lapping at Jenson’s pace when he was on the softs, it’s just the mysterious fourth stint where it all went wrong. Button said he kept adjusting the front wing and actually said the car felt better on the hards which may be down to set-up more than driving styles, etc.
I have a sneaky feeling today that Hamilton was asked to save the tyres but saved them “too much”, not enough heat went in and they started to go off anyway. It happened in a manner with button in Korea, he couldn’t get the heat in so they fell off, it was a similar story at Brawn.
