The conditions are tricky so I don't think they will take too many risks. The first 10 laps will most likely be trying to find a good rhythm and the pushes will come later if they have the tyres left to do it. It would be stupid to push hard early and have no tyres left with 6 laps to go.

It looks like Marc may be the one to beat given his last sequence of laps were all very fast.

Not a Pedro fan then GP40!

This is hard to call.The front guys are so close its a raffle.Will come down to tyre management if the track temperature is high.If thats the case,keep an eye on the old timer!

After the crashes we saw in quali its hard to call this one.
tempratures will be similar during race, but one thing I cannot understand why is grip good in cooler temp while bad in higher, it should be the opposite.

@magic marc I too have the same doubt,, his lap time analysis tells he went out only once and did all laps off the pace but consistently in 1.40's... May be he is testing tyres,, guess he wants to run on hard rear despite grip issues and trying everything possible to do that,, may be he wants to attack later on,, not going to get surprised if he slips down some places early on...

@cm punk may be the temperature is too high to make the tyre softer so soon,, bridgestone tyre strategies also depends,, may be they made tyre expecting lesser temperature than this...
