Oh, okay perhaps I was taking you too literally, that if they gave the same time it wouldn't make any difference which strategy they chose. But being close does mean some teams will chose each strategy and then we get to see them play out, totally agree. And if you read that James article he does emphasise quite a lot that their plan, after a lot of analysis, involved pressuring Max into going through his tyres too fast.Just_a_fan wrote: ↑Wed Aug 14, 2019 9:15 pmNo, I fear you miss my point. The tyre strategy should give equal time thus the team and driver need to make the difference. This was the case in Hungary because the combination of Hamilton and car was able to make it work. Other drivers / cars wouldn't have done so. But it would be nice if they could. That gives options and thus variability which leads to interest and thus happy fans.izzy wrote: ↑Wed Aug 14, 2019 5:15 pmIsn't this missing the idea? The shortest elapsed time should be achieved by being the best team, engineering, strategy and driving. That was the beauty of Hungary, that the team did loads of analysis, as James explains , and combined with Lewis that produced a faster race time not the same race time.
It was F1 on several levels at once, which I love, and these tyres were a big part of it and personally i wouldn't change them, apart from making them 18"
