Option to view tyre life (100%→0%), instead of wear (0%→100%)?

Recommended Posts

This is such a minor thing that I'm kind of embarrassed to say it, but I was thinking about this while doing a 100% race yesterday and it suddenly seemed quite counter-intuitive that tyre wear on the HUD is measured counting up from 0% at brand new to 100% when the tyres are totally, completely dead.

I mean, of course it makes sense. But I was thinking it might be nice to have the option to invert this scale so that it shows tyre life counting down from 100% over time. I feel this might give a better indication of how much you can expect for your tyres in terms of lap times and performance.

Given that it is the exact same scale as the existing tyre wear indicator, just reversed, it could even be an option between them, like how KM/H and MPH are, for example. Although I'm not a developer, so I don't know how easy that is!

Just one incredibly minor idea.

It does make sense though. In "real" F1 they show tire life occasionally, where 10% means tires are almost completely gone.
