But even though he was on the same poor tire call that Button was on, he still managed to pick up 9 positions and finish 11 seconds behind his teammate. Given the pit lane delta and the net time on the inters I figured they both would have finished ~25 seconds up the road.
Magnussen stayed out on Inters, unlike Button who pitted for fresh inters under the SC, and then had to pit again for slicks on the same lap as Magnussen, which explains why Magnussen made up more ground than Button! See tyre strategies: http://www.f1fanatic.co.uk/2014/07/27/2 ... pit-stops/
You're right, I had been looking at the iOS app and just saw both of them listed on inters for 15 laps so I didn't pay attention the the lap count, I wasn't looking at the bottom of the grid that closely to be honest. But yeah, it was a bad roll of the dice for Button indeed.
