Red Bull’s tyre advantage may count for less in Abu Dhabi | 2018 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Friday practice analysis

The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix draws a line under Red Bull and Renault’s 12-year relationship.
Red Bull’s engine deficit is the reason why they’ve only had two pole positions this year, both at tracks where engine performance is not a significant factor.

But in Abu Dhabi the ultra-soft is only around 0.2 seconds per lap quicker than the super-soft, so the benefit from doing that is greatly reduced.
