Tyre choice: Alternate (reds)
Finding the limits at COTA is the key to finding speed and consistency - there is plenty of track width to use and gain an advantage out of, but crossing that limit and gathering 1x off-track incidents is also very easy. Furthermore to this there is a ton of time to gain cutting most corners at the apex but without hitting the larger, yellow inside curbs which not only lose you a ton of time, but massively unsettle the car and can cause significant aero damage.
Tyre choice should be alternates (red), though if the track temperature is above 46C/115F, the primary (black) tyre might be beneficial in stint #1. Track temp should drop dramatically from the start of the race to the end of the race due to the late starting time of 3:35pm, so expect the tyres to hang on better in stint 2.
As always you can adjust the ARBs depending on how the balance is for you - higher rear ARB if you're feeling the car is tight, lower rear ARB if the rear is overheating.
