Yes, but not sure if that applies to the driver change ballast?

I assume since we haven't heard anything there won't be tyre changes? In which case it looks like it'll be a RWD walkover...

Gow has confirmed that there are no tyre changes, and the standard (medium) tyre will be used for the full race distance.

Great to see Dan back but a massive shame it's in a dog of a car ran by a tinpot squad with champagne dreams and prosecco budget. A weekend outside the first 20 I suspect.

So you won't be wearing a pink bobble hat this weekend then?

Will the heat - given it is significantly hotter than normal - be a cause for concern? It plus the longer race must be pushing things somewhat?

From outside the UK - how much hotter is the track likely to be than it was at the test?

Remember Jack Goff last year - after a normal race distance his tyres were completely gone. Hope to be proved wrong, but I fear tyres will get in the way of a good race...

For everyone's sake I hope it cools down!

Don't bet on it. The BMW's have been chewing their rear tyres all year.
