It seems to me that the practical result is that a car which has the lead will now need to build an even larger gap between itself and the car behind, if it wishes to come out of the pits with the lead.

Combine that with different tire strategies and we might see more lead changes.

Funny that Kobayashi wrecked a Ferrari demonstration car on wet streets in Moscow. If they want a driver who wrecks cars, why don't they hire Sato from IndyCar?

since it is the same for everyone it shouldn't make a difference to strategy (at least I don't think so).
would it have more impact on an "n" versus an "n+1" strategy?

Good point. Anyone yet calculated how much time 20 kph will add to the average pit stop? IIRC pit deltas vary between 17 and 24 seconds.

It varies at each track but adds about 4 sec. to a stop time at Hungaroring. So n+1 will cost an additional 16-17 sec. over n.

Thanks. 17 seconds is basically a pit stop.

Scratching my head on that one? About 4 seconds a lap is correct for hungaroring.

What is n? (number of stops?) Stop times will increase from 20s (average time last year) to around 24s per stop with new pit lane speed limit.

Red Bull depressingly quick, but this track is perfect for them.
