the laptime is not important, Pirelli needs to stay one step ahead of the teams. Keep changing that rubber on them. What happened to the big exciting performance fall off during the race?

Bridgestone got out of F1 due to cost and the number of tires being used. Pirelli seems to have taken a different approach and now talks of 6 sets of tires. Where is the cost saving with this approach? And the Gotta look green?

The "Green" people at f1 have effectively taken a stance where "This doesn't apply to the green rules, but this this and this will apply." It's ridiculous. I would love a qualy tire. It forces people to go out instead of sitting on tires.

It's crazy, should be just two types of tyres, apart from inters and full wets.
Qualies and a race tyre that will last the full distance and while there about it how about larger rims with low profile jobs like a road car.
Get rid of the pit stop crap. So they actually have to race.
