Ferrari SF15-T Tyre Temps

    How come when the track temp is around 20-24c SS or even sometimes S tyres heat up to over 120c in just 2-3 corners causing extreme lack of grip to the point where I can lap faster on Medium compound.

    For instance you see in real F1 they use SS and even US all the time in much hotter conditions like Monza/Singapore and don't complain about the tyres overheating like this and losing so much grip.

    Also on the RSR leaderboards using this car, they always turn the track temp down to like 8-12c in order to keep the softer tyres from overheating...

    Also the tyre pressures are like 10 psi higher than optimal and you can't take them down any lower

    I'm not saying Kunos is wrong or anything I'd just like more info :D

    Yeah I've been reading over that thread since I posted this one and it seems people are having the same issue, when up to driving temps it's more than 10 PSI higher than ideal and basically makes the softer compounds un-usable unless it's real cold conditions.

    Is this just a non-issue for Kunos?

    There were no US in 2015

    Monza used Softs-Mediums in 2015

    It's well known that they absolutely could not drive these tyres 100% without severe overheating. They don't complain about it because they already know how to drive 4 seconds off to keep them alive.

    It's well known everyone was running the minimum mandated tyre pressures in 2015 and even using secret tricks to go as low as they could.

    There weren't even ultra softs back in 2015 afaik... I think people confuse the car with the current car which it isn't and yes - teams were crying that they cant drive at 100%. It was kinda big deal then so Pirelli changed the tyres a bit for 2016.
