Quote JS7 --

I couldn't care less about the championship, I want to see drivers racing each other not their lap deltas.

Of course you couldn't! How many millions have you invested in ANY of the teams this year??

It's all politic and all about money. You can bet the commercial rights holder has led the FIA to mandate to Pirelli that the tires be changed. How long Pirelli will continue to be the scapegoat of F1 is anybody's guess.

@ richard, I cant get hold of Pirelli, but Gary Anderson had this to say after China
The race he drove was exactly what I expected. In fact, I predicted on Saturday that he would win because you know that instead of just looking after the tyres he drives them to the maximum they can take, without over-driving the car. And that is very important.
He was talking about Ferrari and Alonso

ferdi. I have absolutely no doubt that your namesake would drive that way, but then again, so would kimi, or vettel or lulu etc. some of the lower drivers would over drive and destroy their tyres, but any of the top drivers would drive at the max allowed by their tyres.
