They are doing it to try to somewhat save their tyres image. Since all teams can't agree on a new construction, they forced Pirelli to go a little conservative. Makes sense to me. Lotus just doesn't like it because they only stand a chance when everyone else's tyres are shredding.

The unusual hard tyre chose for the next three race does make sense to Pirelli as their clear intentions are to punish those teams that blocked the introduction (in season which goes against the rules) of their new construction tyre.

“But it's fair to have everyone on the same tyre”. Since when were teams not on the same tyres or not given the same tyres?
Cannot be other then one of two things, it's either senseless/meaningless stupidity or my inability to understand/make out the meaning of some writings.

Pirelli's tyre chose for the next three races which smacks of punishing the opposing teams was of no surprise seeing that Pirelli might reason they have nothing to lose now most probably them being on their way out and knowing that the FIA will be relieved when that happens.

Anyone who believes that a single tire construction is fair is smoking propaganda, and should go check in to a commune. People who understand efficiency and equity understand the utility of real competition and not a manufactured spectacle.

I feel sorry for anyone who believes in the single tire rule because they obviously have an extremely superficial realization of how things really work.
