F1 POLL: Is Pirelli right to make changes?
The Spanish Grand Prix appears to have been the final straw when it comes to the discussion over whether the current breed tyres is spoliling to F1 show rather than adding to it.
Asked, after its first year back in F1, to produce a range of rubber that not only added to the spectacle on track, but also increased the range of strategic options, Pirelli has stuck to its task diligently. However, with Fernando Alonso winning the Spanish Grand Prix despite make four tyre changes, and adding to a litany of complaints over the opening four rounds, changes will now be made for the forthcoming Canadian Grand Prix - ironically, the anniversary of the race that prompted to move towards more aggressive tyres in the first place.
"Our aim is to provide the teams with a new range which mixes the stability of the 2012 tyres and the performance of the current ones," motorsport director Paul Hembery has confirmed, adding that two to three stops is the aim for the rest of the year, along with the goal of eliminating the delaminations that have become prevelant in recent races.
But, amid fears that the move to tyres that more closely resemble those of 2012 will favour the likes of Red Bull, is change necessarily a good thing?
