You know the tires are totally cr*p when all of the teams basically elect to sit out the majority of FP1 for fear of using up tires they may want for the race. To see nobody racing full out anymore is ridiculous. No matter how much Pirelli wants to pretend that this is normal, it's not. Being able to manage tires has generally been a part of racing, but when it becomes the sole consideration, it just becomes random and boring. I know Bernie and the weak-minded broadcasters love the randomness of it all, as they equate randomness with being interesting, but I'm seriously considering forgetting about F1 until mid-season and checking back again to see if something has happened with the tires.

Not true, even when they had tires to run in the past they wouldn't venture out much. If they had tires now, they'd just not use the engine. I prefer a third car for all teams in P1 with a seperate set of tires with the reserve driver in. At least then you have a spare car built up ready for the rest of the weekend, instead of in bit's in the trucks.
