@mimi - use the tires that were illegally tested (for the good of all teams according to Ross) .....advantage Mercedes? That would put Red Bull and Ferrari's knickers in a twist.

Ever since they started to interfere in the construction of the tyre then that was the slippery slope. you should not put a life into a tyre they should be built to last a race ,and to be change at the discretion of the team . you so not and should not have it the a tyre company say's that you must change tyres around ten to twelve laps because it is only built to last that long . They are determining the race winner . gone are the day's when you changed tyres when it was advantageous to the team right now we a lottery or more dangerous we have a game of Russian roulette. see who gets killed first . no no we want a race of the fastest driver combined with good teams manship

If you want to see some fun. Have the FIA rule that tires may only be used on at the position specified by Pirelli and within a narrow inflation pressure window. Some of the teams would just put their heads down and work with what they have. Other will continue to whine and cry foul.

Did anyone read the report from Pirelli ? The teams that had problems were mounting tires in the wrong locations and running way too low tire pressures and too much camber. First you should use the product as designed and stop trying to reinvent the (literal) wheel ! Problem solved.
