Sauber star Kamui Kobayashi predicts some unusual sights and 'funny moments' ahead in F1 2011 thanks to the vagaries of the Pirelli tyres - but could an HRT really overtake a Red Bull..?

@Taz - don't forget that Kobi on fresh tires passed Alonso's Ferrari on worn tires at Valencia last year so it is likely we will see more situations like that this season.

Quicker than those HRTs that were only launched three hours ago and you've never seen on track??? How do you know how fast they'll be?

The back end is Williams (same engine, gearbox and suspension) so they may not be as much of a dog as last year.

Man the new tires could produce something like a 100 pit stops per race..If this is the way the races will be run this season, the WDC will be decided by pit stops... Nascar style without refueling. HRT can only improve, the rear of the car is all Williams. This should take some of the (Guess work)
set up Magic out of the Equation. This time around HRT has a set of experienced drivers 'Capable' of
getting the best the car has to offer.....
