& while on the 90% theme ... guess tyres related issues will make up that portion of the news again after this race.

Maybe Hembery should listen more and talk less. Insulting a 2 time world champion or trying to be a standup comedian makes him look a bit stupid when his tyres fail during the race.

After moving the goalposts halfway through the season by the introduction of their new constriction tyre Pirelli is still producing crap tyres as evidenced today and as confirmed by the Spaniard and contrary to what the Englishman said and claimed, the less the Englishman opens his mouth the better for Pirelli and the doorman.

I think after the marshals making a complete fool of themselves on the track that Korea just went bye bye.

And heeeere we go again with Pirelli. I get that F1 wants to make the races exciting, but you should be making the tyres last a whole race, NOT 10 laps. Here's why. Longer tyres means no conservation, which means everyone will push, which will mean more overtakes and tighter races.

If the Hulk doesn't get an F1 drive next year it will be the biggest crime to F1 since Kobayashi's departure. It's stupid how someone's genetics/appearance and height decide drives nowadays.

F1 is DOA. Montezemolo is right, the teams have to create a new series and bury F1 for good. The drivers need to RACE, not conserve their tires, or gas or whatever. It's not even racing anymore, it's the Multi-Million Dollar Corporate juggernaut and the fans are sick of it. The fans want drivers to go for it!!!! I can't see this circus lasting much longer :(

A lot of the comments about Pirelli are unjust.

Perez had gone beyond the 20 laps the tyres are expected to last and he then made a mistake and seriously flat spotted the tyre...... Driver and team to blame for this one.

Unfortunate for Webber who was the major loser in this one. He couldn't buy luck at the moment.

After all how many other tyre failures were there yesterday.
