Yep, but not during or after rain. If they had to switch or start on inters/wetsthey don't have to use both and can just stick to whichever tyre they like best.Question are you required to run both compounds like last year?...
I read on Formula1.com that Bridgestone is bringing the soft & hard compounds contrary to Australia, where they brought supersofts & medium compounds.
Short stints like AnGuRuSO implied seem likely to happen and for KERS teams this means they'll probably try to get the softs out of the way as quick as possible (and use them for some 1st-lap overtaking while they're at it ).
If there's a high chance of rain teams might probably just start on the hard and hope they can switch to inters/wet during the race therefore forgoing the softs.
If this keeps up managing tyres throughout the year is gonna be a bitch for them. :/
