I believe we should have a requirement that the OP actually puts something into the OP for these threads

I guess we need to hope for rain for every race for the rest of the season? I think that really what made the last race interesting.

One thing I learned this past weekend was that once you have inters or wets on the car the mandatory compound rule is thrown out. I think that also helped make melbourne interesting. Anyone else agree? I feel like now drivers can play to theirs, and the cars strengths.

The rain seemed to make the race most interesting to me due to when do you change to the soft tires. Pit stops defiently add an aspect to the race such as how long schumi's pit stop took this past weekend.

+1 on the rain saving the last race. Otherwise everyone starts on softs, runs them until they go off, then switches to hards.

Now riddle me this, Batman: How is it that the softer, 'option' compound was able to last nearly an entire race distance? If the rules require you use 2 sets, then the longest the *hard* compound should last is somewhat more than half a race. As it is, everyone wants to use softs the entire way, but are forced to strap on the rock-hard, seconds slower compound for some portion of the race. They can't even get enough heat in the options! Does the FIA dictate the compound to Bridgestone? It's madness.

Anyway, here's hoping for rain in Sepang!

I think the fuel weight is compounding the tire issue. I think the extra weight does far less damage than people think. Its the speed and aggressiveness that brings tires above their optimal temperatures. So with all the weight they go slower and less g on the turns, and less scrubbing of the tires so they last uber long. Plus they keep gaining time with the weight burning off, so the gain in switching to new rubber just isn't there.

We're just joking. Put in the OP what you think is going to happen in the race and everyone will be fine with it

I agree and disagree because weight does cause added tire damage, thats just plain and simple to understand. Now from watching the last two races I would agree that compared to last season they seem to be going a bit slower and more conservative due to weight increases? More opinions?

^the tire degradation is due to the drivers overdriving the tires. it causes the tires to grain. if the teams want the tires to last, the drivers need to be smooth.

so the increased weight due to fuel has no effect on tire degradation?

it has an effect, but its a lesser effect when compared to the way the tires are driven. if you watched Button drive, he was way smooth, which is why he was able to make those tires last as long as they did. the tires grain because the rubber marbles across the tire surface, causing the tire to have a rough surface that reduces grip.
