Zelda, Thanks for your continued fascination in my posts.
The idea that all of a sudden people are tiptoeing around trying to protect tyres is a myth and comments like "I can't drive any slower" from twinkle ears don't help things. Look at the fastest laps from the last 3 Spanish GP's.
2013 -1'26'217- Gutierrez lap 56
2012- 1'26'250 -Grosjean lap 53
2011- 1'26'727- Lulu lap 52
Were you whining about tyres in 2011 when Lulu set the fastest lap, or was he being awesome setting a lap time half a second slower than what was set last Sunday?
As for tyre degradation, Lulu's biggest loss of positions at Spain came in the first lap, now you don't need to be an F1 illuminati to know that tyre deg doesn't affect the first lap. It certainly didn't cause Rosberg to go backwards in the first lap.
