Who knows if the slightly lower CoG would aid the Pirelli´s massively around here?

The team knows if the slightly lower CoG would aid the Pirelli's massively, and have judged that the aero benefits out weigh the CoG losses. Teams don't guess, it's all analysed and calculated to the nth degree.

As each GP goes by, I cant help but feel that button would not be so literally lost in the woods (I know its not literally but it sounds dramatic, leave me alone) in terms of setting his car up to at leaast get into Q3 comfortably had McLaren actually tested their new nose further than just doing a single run in Mugello over the few days they were there.
