Why dont they understand, we want to see the action on the track not in the pit lane, just give them the tyres so the can drive hard and let it come down to driver tallent not who can change the tyres faster.

I think if we are going to have to have two different compounds then why not select the tyres by means of a draw.. ie - two compounds randomly drawn 'out of the hat'. this would open up the possibility of supersoft and hard being used at a race - we've not seen that yet.
the FIA could also bring in a must do at least 1/3 distance on each compound - this would remove the 'do one lap on the less favoured tyre' scenario.

Pirelli are doing a good job. We want more disintegrating rubber, not the stuff which lasts for ages. Pirelli have made a major contribution to making the races more interesting and less of a forgone conclusion.

why dont they take 2.5mm of rubber off each set of tyres then they wont last as long lol even tho i'd prefer to see hard racing and not pit stop overtakes but then it is very good to watch.. pirelli have done a good job and like it says in the thread the teams and drivers are getting to grips to make the tyres last longer hence wanting a different approach.

Josh unregistered, silly second name... maybe you're familiar with the term ok slight exaggeration..

but we have had scenarios where a driver will start on mediums, there's an incident early on (say within the first 10 laps) bringing out the safety car whereby the medium shod driver comes in and switches for the duration of the race onto hards.

i'm sorry if you took my comment so literally.

stigo. in fact there have been quite a few occasions where there has been an incident on the first lap, and a car has come into the pits and got rid of the soft tyres that it started on.
