Maldonado – Montoya.
That would be an explosive pairing.
I mean, taking in account of acceleration approximations, cornering radii, track width etc. measurements.
Has anyone tried to use accurate measurements to construct circuits, much like what the circuit architects are doing, instead of simply saying short/long straights and slow/fast curves?
The number of compound types (four) is fine. However, instead of allowing strategies ranging from 2-stop to 4-stop, these tyre compounds should allow no-stop to 2-stop strategies. (ie. make the tyres less prone to degradation, then drivers are allowed to push the cars more aggressively.)
Bring back Quali tyres, allow them only in P3 and Qualifying. Limit the number of Quali tyres available in each qualifying session.
Scrap the front 10 tyre rule and the ‘compulsory stop’ rule.
Allow different tyre compounds fitted to different wheels during race. Then we can see conservative approaches where harder compounds are fitted to outer wheels and softer compounds to inner wheels.
