Ferrari F2007 - harder Bridgestone tyres 07 April 2007

At Sepang on Friday, the harder tyre was also sliding in corners, though not nearly as much as the softer compound (hence single, rather than double, yellow arrow), but provided less traction on the straights - and hence a lower final top speed. This meant using the harder, more cautious option didn't pay off. Ferrari was one of the few teams able to maintain a strong pace on this tyre - something that could be key in Sunday's race when the use of both compounds is compulsory for all drivers.
