I would like the forumers help so that i can understand how Ferrari and Mcalren use tyres.

If possible could someone provide me with lap times by Kimi when he was on his soft tyre and lap times of hamilton when he was on his soft tyre.

i get a sneaking suspicion that ferrari actually treat the rubber better than the mclarens, but i could be wrong.

I also noticed that after his first pit stop hamilton's lap times were slower and then after that they went back up again. why did this happen?

I suspect that Ferrari treats its tyres much better, this is probably why McLaren have better quali speed, (they get temp up quicker). Renault, for example said that Alonso couldn't go 1 stop because the softs would be trashed, whereas Kimi had no problem 1 stopping.

Kimi's fastest lap (1:27.903) was set on lap 20 of a run of 31 laps was 0.45 slower than lewis's lap (1:27.452).

Kimi had at least 11 laps of fuel on board, Lewis had at least 4 laps of fuel on board (apparanly Macca bought lewis in early though).

Kimi's time was set in free air on 20 lap old soft tyres,
Lewis's time was set in free air on 21 lap old hard tyres,

hams times would have gotten slower because of the additional fuel load, he took on quite a lot...
