F1 » War of words over tyre wear heats up


After the pit stop frenzy in Barcelona, it seems everyone had a view on Pirelli's 2013 tyre compounds. And by no means everyone wants to see changes.

You have to expect Red Bull to be the main critic about anything at this point. They look like they are about to be knocked off their perch, Alonso has had a mediocre start due to two poor races, but Barcelona showed what the Ferrari can do when it works without problems. But never under estimate Kimi. Its the unpredictable nature of the tyres that is giving the close racing. A well designed car will maximise whatever rubber it has on it, whether that be 5, 10 or 20 laps. And a slightly poorer car will destroy it tyres faster, the fact they last 10 or 20 is almost irrelevant, maximise what you have, not bleat about what you wish you had just because others make it work better. But thats F1, nobody is ever happy.

Every time a team has trouble winning should the rules be changed? Ferrari and Lotus have spent a lot of time, money and resources to design their cars for this tyre. Now F1 changes the tyre, and calls it "in the name of safety".
