    I know what you did there @hkraft300

    Anyway, there are lots of compounds so, it'll depend on the car track and especially weather and track conditions.

    It's not easy but to compensate a bit, don't forget tyres are getting better too so you can go "flat out" for a couple of stints and the tyres still last. In LMP2 last year at Le Mans I recall that some teams even triple stint them (at night).

    And this year with high temps and limited tyres it'll be fun to watch

    But this is just more "extreme" situation to point out that it's not always like... Pirelli bad year

    Michelin makes a better tire than pirelli in my opinion

    The last two:

    a) Do low pressures cause way more increased wear under sunny conditions?
    b) Tyre wear is 100% represented on each tyre graphic, or it's again the weird 50% only no one understood why back then?

    The 50% thing is because the HUD is only showing you the tread layer and not the entire carcass. At 50% "tire" wear, as the HUD displays, you have actually used 100% of your Tread layer. This is the layer the tire is actually designed to run on. The carcass layer is not built as a driveable layer. It's the foundation of the tire. To me, the HUD display makes perfect sense that way.

    agreed other wise you would be driving on the carcus thinking you still have tire left and BAM! flat tire.
