Alot of ppl though MSwas talking foolishness but i am happy that someone with the knowledge like mr brawn see it as ms say it will only a matter of time before the others see it and may God forbid we don,t have a serious accident with these tyres. with the technology in F1 tyres should not be winning races .

F1 is no longer the premier level, it's more about managing a car rather than all out racing. In an effort to get back to proper racing and to put on a good show, too many short cuts (DRS, KERS, current tyres) have been taken to cover up the problem rather than addressing it. Why can't a car follow another car and overtake? IMO, the answer is the aero. They need to cut this right back or find a way such that the aero effect of one car doesn't rob the car immediately behind it. Without huge aero, cars will race much closer together.

brawns team have designed a car that is endeavouring to perform at its optimum in quali trim, using ddrs. unfortunately this is compromising its balance in race trim, leading to excessive tyre wear. he wants the best of both worlds, and it aint working. a bit pointless bleating about it. better to try and sort out your own designers first.
