Same happens to me on that track, Richard, so don't feel too bad about it...

Don't forget there are still the Hards to be used...

Try to use less camber and 130~140Kpa tyre pressure. But the most important is how you drive. If you drive in joy (like me) or even in wheel you can lower some steering sensitive, this way you have a softer and more precise driving helping the tyres life. If you drive in Kb (like Sexy above) its more hard to do it because kb is more "bad" with the tyres due his non-analogic control.

Hope it helps

Advice of the century! Surprised 
Super helpful and effective.

Richard, check out this thread about reducing tyre wear, but note that the figures used are specific to last season's mod and don't apply to this season. The general information still applies though.

It wasn't exactly an advice, Adrian. It was a FACT about this particular track.

And since I'm getting the same wear as Richard, I was telling him not to worry, because there's nothing wrong with his setup or driving - it's because of the track.

I honestly doubt ANY of you guys can make your front right Softs last more than 5 or 6 laps (maybe 7 with LOTS of luck and extreme careful driving)...
