Got 17/20. Knew the 18th (the first question) but couldn't get the damn spelling! Thought it was Pedrables

I expect a lot of overtaking on the straight thanks to the DRS. 1991 (Mansell-Senna) revisited? But then without the sparks... :(

Because the DRS zone is so long, there car using it will fly past way before the corner, imo.

Quote:
Paul Hembery: "We said from the start of the year that we would introduce evolutions of the tyres if we believed that they would benefit the sport and Barcelona marks the first occasion that we have done this. The new tyre - which we have tested extensively – reduces degradation and improves tyre wear.

"It's not a huge step over the original hard tyre but it does mean that there is a bigger gap between the soft and the hard tyre, which will definitely make things even more interesting on race day and give teams the opportunity to use more creative strategies.

"In Barcelona, based on the data we have seen in testing, we're probably expecting around three pit stops per car. It takes a lot longer to enter and leave the pits in Barcelona than it did in Turkey, and this is another factor that will have a definite influence on strategy."
