Best strategies out of 71 laps of the GP Styria (Pirelli data)

The race should take place in the dry, with lower temperatures than last Sunday. On paper, the best strategy is to stop, slightly different from the previous race given the better performance of soft tires. The fastest saw a first stint on P Zero Red soft for 28-33 laps, then P Zero White hard to the finish. The second tactic has the first part of the race on P Zero Yellow medium for 30-35 laps, then soft. This strategy can also be reversed. A stopover strategy is very similar, with medium for the first 24-30 laps, then hard. A tactic on two stops is much slower: first two stints on P Zero Red soft 24-26 laps each, then medium.
