I'm talking slow corners with short apexes, not medium speed ones (with gradual exits). The traction issue's only really shown itself in Monaco and Bahrain, which have more short, tight corners than anywhere else so far. In those you have to have some traction to start to apply full throttle in the first place. Watch the Chinese Grand Prix, specifically the hairpin. The mp4-27 is great under breaking into the corner, but even on better tyres they seem to be slow coming out of the hairpin compared to the cars around them. Again, take this all with a pinch of salt, it could be down to the physical characteristics of the car.
