I was following him, and it looked to me like HP Man had huge fun blasting through his pads in a few minutes at the end of the day. I was running the same brakes and the same pads but I was braking a little earlier, giving up a couple of seconds a lap (no s/c and a llittle more conservative driving) and I used 1.5mm off my new pads in the course of the whole day.
New Mintex pads have a 6mm backing plate and 12mm of brake pad compound. Mine had 10.5mm of pad material left at the end of the day.
