Four Key Pointers

  • Maximising track time will be key to unlocking performance and understanding the tyre degradation around this new circuit.
  • With track temperatures forecast to be cold, drivers will face a tricky test of their tyre warm-up skills to extract maximum lap time and get tyres up to temperature quickly.
  • Brakes could also face the brunt of the cold weather forecast with not many braking zones for drivers to generate tyre temperature, which could lead to several lock-ups across the weekend.
  • Mercedes will look to nail their setup and tyre management across the three practice sessions, having struggled in Brazil with their tyre degradation.
