Why Mercedes believe Ferrari’s soft tyre strategy is “risky” | 2019 Austrian Grand Prix pre-race analysis

“I think that Ferrari [and] Charles starting on the soft is a risky strategy because it is either a two-stop if things go bad tomorrow or you are being very compromised towards the end of your first stint.”
“For sure starting on medium is the strategy that is giving you the best flexibility for the race,” Mario Isola said.
“We did some analysis after FP2, like every team does after the race simulation, and the soft looked pretty good so we are pretty happy with our strategy.”
If Ferrari have got their strategy call right, it looks like being a very good race for Leclerc.
