This would be pretty crucial if he wants to make something of his race. It will be interesting to see how fast the softs go off.
Still means that both McLaren drivers will have to run the softs at some point however, which isn't a nice feeling because you just know the end of the race is going to be hard for them and most of the race they will appear to be in a better position than they actually are.
I hope they learn from Sutil's experiment with this in Australia that you can't stretch the option tyre out without massive drops in pace. If they want to stick on the options at the end, do it based on how many laps the cars who started on them did... regardless of difference in fuel loads etc.
If they last 8 laps, stick them on with 8 laps to go.
