WHY do we need different compounds now? It complicates things for the teams having to compromise set ups for both. Have one tyre and no pit stops at all now. Qualify on race fuel and we'd have a simple change to improve racing straight away without affecting car design.

No one is in a rush, no wonder. Something like rallying or WSB & MotoGP are better marketing tools.

Reckon they'll all be on remoulds next year :)

Darkhairedlord - Bridgestone weren't keen on that as it meant them having to bring enough of every tyre to be able to supply all teams. Choosing 2 compounds helps out Bridgestone by limiting the number of tyres they need to bring.

Harder tyres is what I have called for. I think it is the way to go, but then it may not be, unlike most people who write to this site, I don't pretend to think I know everything. At least we shall get a chance to see what happens one way or the other.
