"I believe that because we are going with one step softer compounds the length of the stint will be shorter, by definition," said Isola.
"Consider the medium compound [used in the British GP], that will be designated the hard for this weekend, the only one that was running [long] was Grosjean for 36 laps, and the tyres were completely finished.
