Endurance races: Tyre wear/Fuel consumption values. Is there a pattern?

    I am trying to see a pattern, if there is one, to the Tyre wear and Fuel consumption values of the various Endurance races of GT League.
    Do you think there is a logic behind the selection of all these values or they differ just for variety?

    Some observations :
    Monza in Gr.1 has 5/5, in Gr.3 3/4 and in Red Bull 3/6.
    Spa in Gr.1 has 4/6 and in Red Bull 3/5.
    Long tracks (Sarthe, Sainte-Croix) may have 3/8 but also 5/4.
    Medium tracks (Mount Panorama, Spa) may have 3/5 but also 4/6 or 3/5.
    3/4 doesn't exist in fast classes (Red Bull and Gr.1) but 3/6, 3/7, 3/8 are common.
    In the slowest car (Porsche) races, there are not 4/6 ,5/4, 4/7, 5/5.
    Tyre consumption value tends to be higher in fast classes (Red Bull and Gr.1).

    What do you think?

    Tire consumption is generally higher in the faster classes because they have tons of downforce and don't slide much.
