Because the very begin of the season now we have all the time mentioned that the primary precedence is the group and the group factors. So race by race now we have usually mentioned with the drivers what will be the scenario and (it was) one thing I mentioned with each of them within the morning (of the race).</p> <p>“Little question that after a number of races issues turn into extra simple, even when discussing with drivers and drivers in some way understanding it. It's by no means a simple name, I've to say, as a result of drivers are within the automotive to drive as quick as they will and to do as a lot as they will for themselves.</p> <p>“However (at Spa) I believe there weren't many selections.

However it was not an supposed two-stop technique and due to this fact it couldn't have an supposed two totally different setups.”</p> <p> </p>
