I thought slicks were supposed to give you more grip?

Nice recovery BTW.

They do, but only when they're warmed up :D

Well, I guess after sliding like that, the tires will be warm :)

Seriously, how long does it usually take to warm them up?

Two, three laps will do it.
I should wait three laps, and THEN turn off all the electronics  :laugh:
