F1 » Pirelli open to reviewing tyres?


Pirelli won't bow to pressure from individual teams, but may yet instigate its own evaluation of this year's F1 rubber.

Racing for 3 laps and conserving tyres for 10!
Well done Pirelli, that makes for interesting racing in my book!
However, those fans who actually pay hundreds of their own money to see real live racing on the 'edge' must realise that they are being ripped off!
C'mon Bernie, step in and sort it you little munchkin you! X

What I would like to know, and I understand it would be almost impossible to answer, but are these ultrasoft tyres faster or slower in comparrison to the 'old' Bridgestones? Logic says they should be faster but I would be dismayed if they were slower and softer...

Well done Pirelli, with the amount of scrubbed rubber all over the track by mid race, makes the racing & only line to follow, go off line to pass (!

Losing interest in F1 full stop

While I like the idea of tyres emulating what would different specs do in a tyre war, the fact that the "cliff" is too brutal, difficult to predict and manage for teams and also the fact that the softer compound does not bring a significant advantage of performance during the race.

The day we'll see a conservative strategy of making one less pit stop which indeed leads to nurse your rubber and an offensive strategy with one more softer compound pit stop bear fruit in the same race, that day the objective will be reached and Lewis can have fun...

The problem is today that everybody nee
