wtf are you on? the Hard's are SLOWER than the Mediums...not faster...

So?
They are still probably gonna go med hard hard hard anyway.
Look at last week, supersoft are surely faster, but so what? Doesn't change the fact that most of the time option tyres are only used for one stint.

Delaying seems very risky to me. In can rain anytime in Malaysia so isn't it much better to get a dry lap as soon as you can even if it's at the start?

Well hold on, based on Q1 the two Force Indias were on course to get into Q3 even if the two Red Bulls improved. One rain shower in Q2 does not define a season.

Probably to begin with, but if the rain passes quickly, the high temp will evaporate the water quite quickly.

Ah, but they didn't both make q3, I know it's only 1 session but Sutil has been out for a full season and is only going to improve as the season goes on.

I'm sure Force India love having a driver like DiResta shifting responsability from himself at all times.

I'm sure they are regretting not going for Sutil/Bianchi at this point.

I'd argue that Kimi, after two years out improved little over the season.

He was quick from the go.

Sutil too.

RBR did IMHO used the s*** tyres to get into Q2, arguably to save some less horrible tyres so at least is my hope. Maybe they did indeed invest all into getting the harders to work on the long runs...

We will see.

Webber is out of 2 new options, so had it been dry, he would have only 1 new set of options to set his flying lap in Q3. Obviously, the ideal runs in Q3 is a 2-stint on 2 new options.

Vettel used Q1 tyres to set his time in Q2. Had it not rain, he would have to use a new set of options still because his time would not have been good enough to get him into Q3.

But it rains.... But I really don't understand RBR's strategy of using options in Q1. IMO, it does not quite make sense.
