Sepang kind on tyres? Heavens no. This thing eats tyres for breakfast. The heat - and the long corners will pound the life out of the tyres. There will be massive heat deg.NathanOlder wrote:Whats the expected tyre wear going to be ? Kinder on the tyres than in Australia? Plus the use harder compounds.

What's the weather saying? I guess it's kinda useless to try and predict it a week in advance, especially in that area...
Either way, it's Sepang, there's a good chance that if there's thunder storms about, we're going to get a cloud burst over the circuit at some point.

It could be as little as 15 minutes walk going from one end of the rain area to the other end.
I'm not convinced by that logic – remember valencia last year? The RB7 ran off with it because it had massively lower deg than the McLaren.NathanOlder wrote:High Deg will be good though, as everyone will suffer from it , and will only be a lap or 2 difference between drivers who are kind and drivers who are hard on tyres.
