Pirelli is most probably paving the way to do a 2013 type of tyre specification change halfway trough the season.
some drivers are locking their rear brakes more then others, some of them doing so are the once that have done more mileage then others which logic says should have adapted more then others so I don't know why Pirelli is worrying their pretty ass about it.

Mercedes couldn't decide which particular corner he was locking-up, he was flat-spotting two out of three sets of rubber left right and centre (no particular pattern) when trying to set the fastest time.

Taipan, on a more serious note, Lulu seems to be still trying to adapt to the Mercedes FRIC system, this system which try compensate to the car ride height of each corner of the car is not helping his style of braking at all.
