The softs, as we saw in China are not fit for purpose, giving just five laps before dropping off. Tweaking the hard which work well while keeping the softs unchanged makes no sense.

I wish Lewis Hamilton would retire so I would lose all interest in F1. Pirelli dictating tire performance which will affect results for particular teams is dishonest at best. There is no reason for them to change compounds mid season unless there is a clear safety issue, and if that is the case, Pirelli have no business being the sole tire supplier in F1.

Pirellis dominance in F1 is like Bridgstones dominance in Motogp, they fully decide who will win or lose a race.
if someone is doing better they just find a reason to change the componds and take any advantage away.

Prof x, I agree with what you said about controlling the racing (show) but you attributed the motive to the wrong owners (entity).
Dominance by a team and or driver in F1 racing is not in the interests of BE or the FIA, they are the ones that runs the show and as such they need to be able to fully control the show.
