For me the sport softs slow way down before the tire meter hits the halfway point. I believe that the tires get worse at the halfway point but if you can still run a decent lap time why stop.No both sports and race tires have that massive falloff point at the halfway mark. Tested it out for yourself if you don't believe me to game's tire mechanics. I'm also not saying it's always the best time to pit at that point. In saying most cases it best to pit before allowing your tires get to pass that halfway point. This race however may be a rare case where it's better to push beyond that halfway point if you can eliminate a pit stop.
