F1 » Pirelli: Tyre war pointless


Paul Hembery: If it [F1] wants a tyre war and procession racing again, like it did in the early 2000s, when the audience disappeared, than that's one approach. It's not for us to decide

When you know the other tire manufactures are way stronger than you of-course "tyre was 'IS' pointless" so I take these words are intelligent thinking by them. I'm pretty sure Michelin or Bridgestone would had nailed this year's tires way better than Pirelli and without leting the drivers blind folded.

So....this has turned out to be Pirelli dictated championship, I find it hard to believe that the teams are just taking it so dry! F1 has lost it's last bit of integrity!!!

A tyre war wouldn't achieve anything aside from increasing costs with little commercial benefit.

The best solution is to have a single tyre supplier and then it is up to the FIA to stipulate the characteristics that they require from the tyre and work with the manufacturer to achieve them.

Racing really is all about the tires. I hope f1 stays with one tire.

You can have the best car, best driver, best team and still stink at the race track if your team is running the wrong manufacturers tires.

Tire competition racing is really boring and frustrating to watch because the best often does not win.

agree with buck...

you can build the best car, but with the wrong tires... your car is no less than a Gp2 ... one tire supplier is the way to go, but for now anything is better than Pirelli...
