What Horner said, seems to bring in front the balance between the setting the car light on the tyres and keeping the downforce as high as possible. It looks a little bit like a lottery, but such dilemmas have always been a part of the game.

Vettel always tries to blast out fast laps at the start of the race, to create a huge gap to second which he can then try to manage through the race...however, in doing that this time, he just shredded his tires. So that strategy clearly isn't going to serve him very well on the super softs.

Maybe their setup was to aggressive in Melbourne, will be interesting to see how the tires will behave in KL. They certainly have enough raw pace, well at least Vettel has. Mark seems to be the one on the receiving end of all technical failures, either that or he falls asleep at the start of most races.
