Summer tyres provide excellent grip on the track, not in the morning session. The only problem I have with the M2 line is steering feedback. Weight in Sport Plus mode is nice and heavy and the entrance is very fast, but there is a disconnect between what tires I make and what I feel through the steering wheel.
