The tyres will hold the key to success at the the Malaysian Grand Prix, according to Lewis Hamilton.
The McLaren driver, who starts from pole position, reckons that managing the Pirelli tyres will play a big part in tomorrow’s race.
“It is [crucial at Sepang]; positioning and tyre management,” he said. “In these conditions you never know what is going to happen, and these tyres are having a seriously hard time around here, so it’s going to be interesting.
“This is a very tricky circuit with the temperatures and humidity outside. It will be massively tough tomorrow, so we just have to put ourselves in the best place we can.”
Hamilton claimed his second straight pole of the 2012 season and will again share the front row with his McLaren team-mate Jenson Button, who leads the championship after his victory in Australia last weekend.
