Still inconclusive. I don't think any of us can really know the implications that the tyre choices have and also when they're pitting. This race will be mental, especially that new loop in the opening laps.
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

There'll be lots of interesting tyre strategy, RB look like pitting early and the others look like they'll pit later on

Schumacher says Mercedes will be doing one-stop, and 'doing 2-stops can only be an emergency solution if some problem occurs, but usually, that's a bad choice'.

I thought so!

I thought I saw a difference on Hamiltons helmet, so I looked up some of his helmets and saw the sponsors on his chin a disapearred, so that means more yellow on Hamiltons helmet :)

Soft tyres tend to overheat easily (one slide was enough), according to Rosberg, who secretly aimed for pole-position.

Hamilton happy and says they (McLaren) lose a second in the middle section compared to the front runners, he hopes to stay 4th for the race, and maybe gain a position

I wonder... how on earth is a 1-stop strategy going to work if the Soft tyres seems to be 'destroyed' after 10-15 laps already (according to Hamilton in FP)? :blink:
