If there is one thing I have learned from the last race in China is that there is always better to start on softer tyre, specially if you get pole.Zynerji wrote: ↑Sun Apr 22, 2018 3:00 pmI just don't like it...

Overtaking is possible, with the increased drag and aero requirements maybe even more.
It's possible to follow but any passing can only happen into turn 1.
If it's another 1 or 2 stopper it may be crazy.

Do we have any (premature) prediction for the weather?
Start from front row, get away clean, no problem, no incidents (until the back markers )johnny vee wrote: ↑Mon Apr 23, 2018 10:01 amtrue that
i should have maybe worded it like this -
Verstappen's good overtaking vs Verstappen's bad overtaking...
That usually happens, but this time Ferrari limited itself a little too much imo.Vanja #66 wrote: ↑Sat Apr 21, 2018 6:26 pmEven with drastically different choices between Mercedes and Ferrari in China, they had the same tyres in Q - 1 Med, 2 Softs and 3 Ultras. So it's more about learning about tyres during P1, 2 and 3 than using them during the race. Also, this is the last race teams had to choose tyres before running with them in Barcelona.
