Yes - JB could of made his tyres last to the end of the race
That wasn't the point I was making. Look at my post, I was saying that it was likely that the tyres were near the end of their life and that it was more likely that they were actually damaged rather than their being some secret coded message for them to flat spot them.
No doubt the tyres were near the end of their life
I don't think it would of been easy
The coded messages remark was just something that I thought could of happened if McLaren felt that a new gearbox was something they wanted and could explain the slow down in lap times. As I also said its more likely it was a genuine fault
Its already been shown that JBs pace was better than SPs with similair life on their tyres
You can look to see how JBs compares to KRs and RGs if you like but you'd probably have to open a new thread
EDIT - to respond to your edit - I have no idea what testing equipment the FIA have (and if they evven bother unless they are confident something dodgy is going on) but I imagine that a "suspension imbalance" (for example) is going to be pretty hard to find just by looking?
