I Welcome the changes, but i don't want too much change as it would be unfair to do too much untill next season for the sake of competition.

I hope next years tyres atleast have some sort of operating window where the driver can go flat out without destroying the life of the tyres.

Oh, so Pirelli decides that RedBull should win this years WDC and Constructors once again... Then just give them the trophy and not race anymore. What a pathetic decision, I would welcome this change if everyone is having problem with it, but it seems that some teams can get on with the tires well like Ferrari and Lotus, Yes Mercedes is having problem but they aint bitching about it like Horner or Dietriz. After the tire change then we will see the well known RedBull Procession.

Let's now celebrate the New "Ferrari", not in terms of success or heritage, but the Ferrari who controls the rules and if not been provided for will result to threat of leaving the sport. Redbull has Adrian Newey, can't they do something with their car to suit the tire like what Ferrari and Lotus did.

Great news, Pirelli have gone to far and tyre management racing has no place at the pinnacle of sport where an F1 car is driven 6 seconds a lap slower than it could be driven to managwe the damned tyres. Whilst I see no point in having processional racing, Spain demonstrated a pointless race which proved nothing and will ultimately bore us all to death

While it will be a shame for Ferrari and Lotus who seem to have a handle on these tires much better than everyone else, they need to be changed.

Remember, it's not just RedBull complaining about them - EVERYONE is.

And as far as I can see, it would be Mercedes who would benefit most from these tyres, not RedBull.

Regardless, when you have people like Button, who, whether you like him or not, is generally renowned as being very good at looking after tyres, comes out and says that it's a mess and they need to change, you have to sit up and take notice.
