Monaco Tyre Strategies
This is what I found, which is very interesting: http://www.pitpass.com/fes_php/pitpa...s_art_id=31586
It is interestin that both McLarens and Fisi appeared to prefer teh soft tyres over the super softs, as they each ran two stints on the harder compound. So, which compound was faster? the soft or Super softs?
I know that normally, having to run both types would rule out a one stop strategy as the poor guy would have to run half the race on a slower tyre and be killed by the two stoppers; but at Monaco, with the faster guys preferring the harder compound, the question here is obviously whether there was much difference in lap times between the two which would make one stoppers very attractive for the midfield runners.When in doubt, run in circles, scream and shout

The use of supersoft on the third stint was probably for securing the car from driving out of the track once they know their positions were safe significantly to finish in front of anybody.

It's to do with graining.
The softs was the most stable tyre, the supersofts went through a bad graining phase.

Valve, i think that most of the 2 stoppers used the harder tyre for 2 stints and the super softs for 1, given that the harder tyre was more stable and seemed to yield more grip on the longer runs, certainly more consistency."I" before "E" except after "C". Weird.

Well Felipe went for super softs just to be denied to use them at full by Davidson whom in his turn was amazed that he got a penalty after holding Felipe up for more than 5 laps and lost him about 15 seconds in the process.

From what I understand the graining wasn't as much a problem as expected due to the relatively cool track temps.“If everything's under control, you're going too slow.” Mario Andretti
