Nico Rosberg set the pace in Malaysia on Friday, but the Mercedes driver admitted that keeping his tires in good shape was a major concern.
“It was a decent day,” said Rosberg. “It was very, very hot, tough for the car and tough for the tires. We never expected so much tire degradation, it’s just massive degradation out there, which is a big challenge. For sure there will be lots of different strategies. With the tires, anything can happen.”
