    1. Wait, ultra-soft tyres in Spa? Wow.

    2. Wonder why they don’t try medium-soft-ultrasoft compo. Gap between softest tyres would give more variable for teams to choose. Just thinking that last years race on singapore…

    3. At this point it seems like those Hard compound tyres(atleast for 2017) are just there because the tyre manufacturer needs harrd compound tyres in lineup for namesake.
