A Strategic Choice?

Refuelling has been banned for this season in an attempt to make the racing more exciting (as well as other reasons). Cars will no longer be able to wait behind a lower fuelled car, overtaking them through the pit-stops. Whether this is good or bad is yet to be seen. However, another reason for the rule change was to make qualifying less complicated. Fans wanted to know who was fasted on Saturday, but often they wouldn’t find out until lap 20 on race day. Ok, but now, announced today, was an extra rule change that seems to negate the whole thing: the top ten drivers will have to start the race on the same tyres they qualified with. Strategy comes back in to play, and we won’t know until half way through Sunday who was really fastest on Saturday.
