Thanks for that @Michel--NL I need help more than anything, with how to reduce tyre wear? I will need to stop twice to get to the end here. I.53.4 in quali best atm.
About the wet tyres:
Yeah, had a bit of the same feeling, also read about it some time ago, that the wets want to be heated more slowly, and do not like aggressive warm ups. It's because of the grooves, you want the edges of the grooves in the tire to be as sharp as possible, for better grip, because it keeps the part that that touched the track clean of water, and the grooves full of water, for better flow out of that water. Rapid or aggressive warm up will have a big effect by smoothing out those edges, thus allowing water to more easily flow underneath the part of the tire that should have clear contact with the track.

A little edit with a suggestion on how to take these tires on:
Qualy: maybe take 2 laps to warm them up easily, just so they are still in perfect state at the start of you lap. But for your qualy lap, this is less important, if you have some other things to watch or account for, focus on that.
Race: make sure they stay warm during the formation lap, since that is just as important if not more. But watch out for putting on too much steering angle, since understeer rips these tires up. This might involve putting a limit on it, so if somebody behind you is pushing you and with that your tires to hard, maybe make a smart move and let them by. So keep these tires in mind, and they should last you long enough for the race.
These are just suggestions, so while the explanation for why the tires can wear so quickly should be correct, how you want to account for that is entirely up to you. Good luck!
