F1 » Rosberg laments ‘rubbish end to qualifying’

107SS2009: Nico had no chose but to run with a “bad” set of tyres (out of 6 set given to each driver) in final qualifying that ultimately cost him a shot at pole. Rob Smedley (Williams) “I was baffled by the fact that Nico had run with such tyres in Q3- rather than getting rid of them earlier in the event. Mercedes know of Nico’s situation in advance, Nico over the radio after the run “how do you know which set is bad and which set is good?”. Totonator after qualifying “ it is one of the things we do, we try to understand the difference between batches (tyres)”.
bad set were the extra set of option tyres that are allocated to Rosberg by the FIA rather than a set that are singled out by the team. Should this extra set of tyres, given to all drivers and only for use in Q3, not be as good as other sets then, like with Rosberg in Canada, it is just bad luck and there is nothing the team can do.
