again quali devalued for fans because of tire rules. would improve things if each driver in top 10 given one new set of soft and they have to return same set at end of q3. that way no advantage gain from saving that set of tire.

Bold move by Mercedes..If it works well, could be a trend
setter. Now if it fails don't start pointing fingers. Man-up
Ross baby, or stay in the closet until sundown.

We've seen this a few times this season but is there any evidence that it has been of benefit? Starting in 10th with nice new tyres is all very well but its not much help if you get 'involved' at the first corner and lose a front wing because you started from the 5th row.
