2023 Australian Grand Prix – Sunday
“It was an edition of the Australian Grand Prix full of unexpected events, with three red flags, several safety cars and a virtual safety car. Other than all these episodes that mainly determined the development of strategies, from the point of view of tire use, the progress of the race confirmed the expectations that were made It took place on the eve of it, in which the Hard C2 compound played the main role.In fact, at the moment of Albon’s first derailment, which happened on lap 7, some of the riders who had already started with the Intermediate switched to Hards, and all the other riders followed them as soon as the break in the race became necessary Despite not being able to gather much information about its behavior over long distances – in free practice there were very few drivers with runs longer than ten laps – the C2 proved to be a very stable tire in terms of degradation and not Far from the other vehicles available here in Melbourne are in chronometric terms and therefore fully meet the requirements for this type of tyre.
The fact that all three vehicles were on the starting grid underlined the good decision to bring the C4 to Australia this year, which was therefore deemed suitable for racing use as well, apart from the fact that it was the main protagonist of the lively final stages, with two red flags almost back-to-back. Moreover, even with relatively short runs, both this compound and the average showed good behavior today, with higher temperatures than previous days and more rubbery asphalt.
