    Worry not ,Tazzy , my man , for there will be yellows and safety cars aplenty tomorrow , so Lulu will have lots of chances to get up front .

    Sure, but that's not a problem unique to Lewis, and he should have much better durability than those around him. Presumably the strategy will be to stay out of trouble at turn 1, hold position as best as he can and then go much longer than everybody else on the first stint. Either way, I'm thinking it should be a really interesting race...

    Well yeah. I was the one who suggested he do this strategy before quali in the first post of this thread. I am just looking for flaws in it
    I see a high probability of it going wrong. If he can maintain his composure, and get a little luck it will work as long as the front doesn't get to far away from him, and he still has life in his SS

    Unless something unusual happens, all US runners should have pitted before than!
