Teams/people that are complaining about the tyres have a vested interest to do so, some cars on the grid tyres usage is more extreme than others, Mercedes had tyres problems for the last three years, RBR seems not to be quite there this year (certainly wasn’t in China) “the car feels good but it’s just not quick (Webber)”, mclaren are starting from Zero regarding tyres behaviour with their new suspension design. Some drivers instead of just looking after the tyres can drive them to the maximum they can take but without over driving the car, but others when the car is not quite there they tend to overdrive the car and so the tyres, The FIA wants two or three pit stops during a race and Pirelli is only doing what it has been asked to do, The tyres even if at varying were always the limiting factor in a race and that for as long as I can remember, Pirelli/FIA will not revert to 2012 tyre compounds.
