What the He-- is the FIA and Pirelli playing at? You would think there would be plenty of tires for the teams to test at this very critical point in a new season and with a rookie tire supplier. All the money spent on the idea of influencing the show is misguided as Bridgestone has demonstrated. Pirelli should make it their business to supply one compound zeroed in to each circuit and let the drivers put on the show. This would be safer and less expensive over the season. Supplying anything beyond a safe tire which works equally well with all chassis is just ego and manipulation.
