If Lewis cant get a good enough explanation at what changed on the car, it has to be the tires or the track condition. I think Ross said something about it getting 'cooler'. Hopefully Lewis has good info about the tire temperatures and how hes wearing in to them tomorrow.

I heard it was debris on the track that caused Hamilton's tyre to literally evaporate.
At some point we may see another Sennaesque fatality in F1 due to these tyres.
Pirrelli need to review this immediately as a small bit of debris can do that in such short space of time means the tyer is made out of fake rubber, which would create fake racing I am seeing currently.

Prof x, yes many believe that the cooler temperatures has effected tyres/cars performance, but strange how it affected team mates driving the same cars differently.
It will be an interesting race tomorrow, first there are the two fastest scalding cats on the grid off a starting line starting 3rd and 4th secondly both are at least 8km/h faster on the straight than the RB8 but I don't know the WO4 top speed yet.

OK, I have checked the top nine respective speed trap times and they are as follows.
Di Resta 314.2km/h, Sutil -0.1, Alonso -0.7, Massa -1.5, Rosberg -2.2, Lulu -2.6, Kimi -5.6, Vettel -8.4, Webber -8.5.
