Which just shows how poor Bottas was then.NathanOlder wrote: ↑Wed Sep 19, 2018 7:39 amNo argument at all, I was pointing more towards drivers could follow relatively easy in Singapore without having a negative affect on their tyres due to the slow corner speeds.Phil wrote: ↑Tue Sep 18, 2018 7:41 pmYes, but a car running a high downforce setup will be more affected by dirty air, than a car running a low downforce setup, everything being equal. And, as i said, surface and grip levels plays a huge role too.
I didnt say Monza doesnt have highspeed (higher) corners. I believe i named them too (just not by names), but i also mentioned that the loss there was made up by the huge straights and the tow (as well as DRS support in Lewis’s case).
So is there really any dispute over why Lewis could follow relatively easy in Monza without having a negative affect on his tires?
With regard to easy following tracks Monaco at least should be discounted as at least 1 driver has moaned about being unable to follow around there.
This is about Mercedes and their improvements however. It’s clear that they have got on top of their tyre eating issues in much the same way as Ferrari don’t look quite as bulletproof in that regard as they did.
