David, any ideas on what

Hi David, any ideas what tyres the front runners were on??.. Is it the stiff construction softer tyre for Casey and the softer construction medium for the rest, If so can see Casey trying to win it in the first 10 laps. Those who love the softer construction only had two tyres for the whole weekend I think?, meaning they couldn't do anything much this session.. ie one for qp and one for the race the others have plenty of fresh rubber I reckon. Seems crazy that those who want the softer construction are penalised in this way.

Tyre choice

The "older" tyres are preffered by NH, VR, DP, KA and IS who also used them for this race.....It isnt just CS who prefers them.
What seems crazy to me is that they would change tyre construction part way through a season.
