Formula 1 strategy
Is it just me or does qualifying with a very light fuel-load and getting a good position on the grid always a good idea in Formula 1? At least for the top 3 or 4 teams? In my opinion, there’s absolutely no point in doing more than 20 laps in the first stint on a regular two stop strategy. It’s one thing if your car is a lot faster than the competition, but currently, that’s only the case with McLaren. Ferrari and Sauber should adopt this strategy more often. Heidfeld did it yesterday in Canada and it worked beautifully.
