It'll be interesting to see what JB has to say about tire life (although I always thought Perez was "kind" to tires)
So far every comment I've read mentions how quickly the tires are degrading. Alonso said they could only get one lap of good data before the tire degradation interfered.

Some are wondering if the cold weather might have something to do with it. I always thought heat killed tires, not cold.

There was a story that the drivers are already speculating that we might see more pit stops this year because of the tire issue.
