Red Bull used to be hard on its tires, instantly switching them on for quali. But now it seems that McLaren have that honor, and their last few cold races have helped them mask it; or if you choose to see it the other way around, it switched their tyres on well for the races. I think given the cold conditions of the last few races it was perfect for them.
Ferrari have been very hard-pressed to take temperature into their tyres and that pet characteristic seemed to bother them in Hungary as well as they were struggling to get tyre temps. But what about Silverstone? It was rather cold, and I was confused that the Ferrari was faster in the cold than the Red Bulls were, especially considering Red Bull's alleged downforce advantage. Could it be possible that Ferrari's operating window has moved to cooler temps, but the semi-dampness in Hungary has nullified that somehow? I don't know, honestly.
What do you folks think? I would love some expert advice on the matter.
