Good strategy when starting last

Recommended Posts

I'm going to be starting my next career race at Mexico in last place after using three new power unit components. It's the first time I've had to do it in this career at McLaren, as my first career was at Alfa Romeo and Ferrari, so the power unit was more reliable. I upgraded reliability early on at McLaren, but I've not managed to go the whole season without changing parts.

I didn't bother with Q2, so I have free choice on tyres. Should I start on softs and pit for mediums at just over the halfway point or start on mediums, go later into the race and finish on softs? If you need an idea of my pace at Mexico, in Q1 I came 8th on 76 difficulty. I do 25% races.

Thanks.

With 25% races I find tyre strategy largely irrelevant. That being said, I would probably start on the harder compound and look to exploit any opportunities provided by a safety car. It's good to have the fastest boots on when racing resumes after the field is packed up.
