I am equally surprised that I have to point this out: we don't all have the same audio feed and so we did not all hear Pedro. We are not psychic, so we have to take what you say as including all of the total facts. You make it a waste of time by not giving full information with your posts. If Pedro said this at the beginning of the race, then it doesn't matter at all because at that stage RBR was planning for Seb and Mark to both do a 2 stop strategy. The 3 stop developed when Mark's tyres went off early. And of course Pedro could not have taken tyres into consideration because he would not know which tyres would be used by the drivers and when.
From this same thread:
At the beginning of the race, De la Rosa was explaining on the Spanish TV that a two-stop strategy was the optimal strategy in ths race, about 10 to 15 secs faster than a three-stop one.
Webber's strategy was not spot on; it was a sub-optimal one. And he was given it when he was leading the race.
I have nothing about team orders, but let's call a spade a spade.
