Numbers do not say the "whole" truth... Just an important but not decisive piece of it... These numbers are determined-compromised by drivers' raw speed (which means better grid position most of the times), by cars' ability over a lap (pretty much the same or worse grid positions), by successful or not team strategy and by cars' ability during a race... There are few more factors that give us these numbers... So, let's see what is to come from a campaign that promises too much, no matter what our preferences are and with only bad point being the big tyre influence... Even that is an interesting point, watching teams and drivers try to "overtake" it but obviously minimise a bit one of the main F1's characteristics that is pure, best possible speed from car's-driver's combination... (sorry for my "bad" english... it's been a long time since I speak or write for last time...)
