There is obviously something I am still not getting with all the tyre deg argument. So let me get this, last season, Merc were notorious for high tyre wear in hot races and the reason they won in China was cos of the cool weather right? Ok so fast forward to the test this year in Barcelona and according to JA on F1 (http://www.jamesalle...celona-f1-test/) the tyre deg on the merc is similar to that of the ferrari. So if merc wasn't worse off from other teams in cold barcelona, then why would it be in hotter weather? Logically if Merc was tyre deg was worse than other teams in Barcelona then it gives room for fear of a higher deg rate in hotter races but this wasn't the case? I know my argument might be bollocks but apart from last season's stats, I'd like to know what else is informing the suspicion of high tyre deg. If we are going by the logic of last season then why even bother watching Oz this weekend
Because it's a different car....?
Nobody knows anything until the season kicks off, and if it's anything like last year even more unlikely team's will know how these tyres work in different conditions until Europe.
