well, no, changing one wheel nut like last race, cost additional 2-3 secs.
but give new instructions to change another 4 tires (if any standing by), will cost even more, like re-do the entire pit stop.

Also if there's no planned compounds left, they will have to switch to the less desired one and further screw the strategy. Not even a so call "plan B" to salvage more points.
If the wheel nut in embedded into the wheel itself, a cross-threaded one will render whole set worthless.
