Canadian GP – Post-race press conference – Pt.2

Lewis, OK, the last two circuits were not demanding in terms of tyre wear. It looked like Mercedes made a step forward in terms of the tyre wear, that was the weakest point you had. Can you explain this development you've made on the car, what happened exactly to make this step forward?

Lewis Hamilton:
I think it's just been a work in progress. We haven't really... we haven't cured anything, it's not been a long period of time since Barcelona where there was big trouble. I guess we've just been to two tracks where it's not got high speed corners, so therefore it's not really been a problem. We've worked on a couple of techniques to look after the tyres a bit more, brake cooling and all that kind of stuff has been added as well, which helps.
