"The only race where they had to make tires unusable after a while their supersoft lasted longer than some hard tires used in other races"

As you should know, the tyre compounds remain the same for the entire season, they can't create new levels of degradation to suit each venue. Monaco is a low degradation circuit, always has been always will be.

Tyres degrade lots at some circuits, people complain. Tyres don't degrade enough at Monaco, people complain. Seriously, what do you want them to do?
