F1 has gone too far from its roots, the tyres are a joke, DRS is a joke and everyone is non stop whining.

No wonder porsche had no Interest in joining, its not even about the cars anymore its completely dictated by tyres.

I think perhaps it is time to bring another tire manufacturer into the fray such as Michelin, Goodyear or Bridgestone. The competitive nature of such a move would ensure teams could push the cars, while the old two compound rule would still allow for strategy. I don't like seeing drivers pussyfoot around to protect their tires, nor do I like to see race winners often determined in the pits.

Yeah when you hear a driver call over his radio to his engineers 'can I race him or should I let him go?' you know that F1 has failed. It isn't Pirellis fault, FIA told them to do it. They don't want Red Bull to run away with it again like in 2011. Very sad. I think last year's tires were the correct spec for wear/durability/performance.

He is right..this isnt racing and these arent racing tires. None of the cars can race to their full potential..why spend millions developing cars when the tires only allow 3/4 racing? Im a fan and a customer. These tires stink, as does what the tires do to the wonderful world of F1 and full blown racing. Everytime Pirelly issues a statement, its as if they are covering themselves. Well, no one believes that load. Bring back the F1 all out sprint races. Until then I will switch my TV viewing and buying to Lemans/sportscar.
