[QUOTE=yco;26524444]did he hear you mate?

cars are crazily fast these days thats for sure but there is still no investigation on the cuts on Max's tires.. thats weird.. Red Bull said that clearly.. high treadwear makes the tires more vulnerable thats for sure..

but from the other side, now at least its more clear for me that McLaren chassis is great and just need a better powertrain.. clearly it uses front tires very nicely since almost at the same time and the very same tire Sainz had problem with was the same with Merc's.. next year we might see McLarens and Ricciardo fighting for podium each race at least.. i strongly believe in this and cant wait to see next year s McLaren with Merc' engine..

*It depends how deep the 'cuts' were, if they were just small nicks from CF litter then it will have little or no effect on tyre performance.
I have an old DTM tyre from few years back and it is like a chewing gum construction, you can dig your finger nails in it!
