Didn't really change much in terms of the pecking order really. Mercs still ate them up, Ferrari and Lotus were still quite good at conserving them. The Bulls may have benefitted a bit but overall it does seem like a good decision to change.

I see that merc are now claiming that they have a right to partake in the ydt, as it is now a new tyre test! their secret test has now been negated, but I believe that they still deserve a punishment for breaking the rules and any perceived disadvantage is merited.

Yep, Lulu's whinging statement on Autosport was hilarious. "It's not fair" they cried.

It's also not fair they got a 1000k private test, life's a b***h.

I thought they got off lightly but to grumble about the slap on the wrist...brass neck springs to mind.

First Toto being such a shy person was saying how worried he was about what the teams taking part in the YDT will be doing (spells learning), lately he said that they are working to persuade the FIA to let them take part in the forthcoming YDT BUT Ross Brawn promptly declared that the only chance they can take part is on only one day if the test will be over four days instead of the original three days and he also said that he doubt if the test will be over four days other than the original schedule of three days.

You love them now? Just wait till Hungary when Pirelli's surrender to Red Bull is complete! Jeez, ALL the drivers love the new tires?That's not what I'm reading.
Vettel goes from chief critic to fawning loverboy even faster than he wins races.

Oh dear I've just read Lulu's interview on Autosport...

"I'm just saying that in a sport everything should be equal"

So all teams should be given a private 1000km test and you'll be handing over half your salary to Rosberg then Lulu?

I think you lot are being unduly harsh with the Golden Child and his faithful fanz boyz.

He quite clearly radioed in he has different tyres than everybody else (hrmph - how could that be).

Also said he was No Grip (great new nick name) - sorry he said had no grip (on anything racing or otherwise)

OMG What a Blooming Winger.............
