F1 » Trulli: Pirelli's development work 'missed' something

Jarno Trulli: Pirelli says the FIA has asked them to make the tyres wear quickly. But I don't think this is the problem. In my opinion, the degradation is secondary to the balance on the track...

That's the most sense I have ever read on here..
I'm just hoping it plays into the hands of button, and some of the mid-fielders so red bull don't dominate again in qualifying. Then we will see a great season in F1!!!!!!

Looks like we will be having a multi-pit-stop race, this season, probably more than three.
I bet most of the passing may take place doing the stops, not on the track. This will kinda contravene the use of the movable wing and kers push to go system. If this is the case F1 has wasted many development bucks reintroducing that electrical system. Tyre performance may have a real effect on the top positions..

Jarno's view meets agreement with others in paddock, the only one who actually like Pirelli tyres is Jenson Button but the results will be seen in near future.

the better cars/teams/drivers will come up with strategies to cope with the tyres, the aero superiority of the red bull means that they will look after the tyres better, so they will still be fast

The consensus is that the Ferrari is a puppy on it's tires, while the Red Bull is just OK and the Merc and Macca go through them like pencil erasers.

James Allen has a really helpful couple of graphs on his blog comparing the teams and tires across this year and last at Barcelona. Check it out.

If the tyres are that bad that they wear out AND affect balance then thats both mclaren drivers out too. Massa, who loves the new tyres, is starting to look like a dark horse for the title.
