Admitting that it regrets not being more daring towards the end of 2012, Pirelli has vowed to be more aggressive with its F1 tyre policy this season.

I would rather watch these guys race around in go karts then be lied to by race manipulation. Put all the drivers in the same make of go karts, and lets see some real action :)

First lap incidents would be an example where guys use a set of tyres for only a lap. They cop a puncture, come in for the harder compound and hope to stretch out for just one stop for another set of the primes. Webber at Suzuka might be an example from 2012, although I don't recall for sure that he went straight on to primes. Otherwise you'd only tend to really see it when someone feels like they've got nothing to lose by trying a whacky strategy. Maybe a poor performance or mech failure in quali put them down the field, then a 1st/2nd lap safety car gives them a chance to try something different.

I don't care what nun yole say the tires mixed this year up and made people re adjust their driving accordingly. 8 different winners lets face it is something special. The tires put it back on the drivers, where the best car wasn't always the one that was going to win. It's weird how there weren't any complaints after mid year. Either Pirelli adjusted them a little or the drivers figured put how to use them but mid way the cream rose to the top any way.

Grosjean and Perez both benefited from pitting early in and running one stop in Canada, whereas race winner Hamilton was the only one of the leaders to do a 'normal' two stop strategy.
