    Notes: Can be used for Race or Time Trial. I qualified 7th using the full wet tire (shows it's not bad for wet weather).

    In the race it was scheduled for wet weather in the 3/4, so I started on the hardest tire and ran til I had to change (Front Left was about 60% wear so the camber is not excessive). Difficult to defend against Ricciardo. Kimi didn't finish the race. Lewis started 12th so he was hounding me throughout, and Max joined the party late on (despite being ahead of me at one point). Changed to Inters and was running nicely in 3rd. Changed to wets and Ricciardo jumped me in the pitstop, so I changed to Rich setting, caught him up, and lunged in to take it back. Defended to the end using Lean to get back lost fuel.

    Two notes about this setup. Firstly .. it might just be me, but the second sector is the weakest. Secondly .. and most importantly, I noticed fuel management was harsh. I had to run lean at certain points, so I'd avoid using Rich during the race if you can help it.
