Well, it's an example of a team I think could benefit from this sort of strategy. I don't think it'd be worth doing if you're Red Bull or Ferrari, but sometimes McLaren have similar issues to Mercedes and could, with a naturally agressive driver like Hamilton, benefit from this pre-emptive thinking.
You're even less likely to do it if you've got good tyre management like Sauber or Lotus, but what amazes me is that nobody
appears to have tried it.
