This race will be a bloodbath, with likely 50C track temps come race day, and softer tyres.
Assuming teams will keep both of their hard tyres for the race and aim for a M/H/H strategy.
I can see teams doing limited running in FP, saving the tyres for the race. The teams have plenty of data from this weekend so only just need to check the softest tyre for qualifying performance. If there are new bits to test, a run on the softest tyre can be done to check aero performance - it's usually done at a given speed so tyre life isn't so much of a problem.
As there's no one at the track, a quiet FP isn't really a problem. If the likes of Sky don't have much to show in their pay-per-view programmes well tough titties to them.
