The chances of a tyre war ever again are low. First of all you have to find two tyre manufacturers willing to compete, and with the financial security to do so. With the way things are in the European market in particular i cannot see this happening. In addition, you could not have a full blown tyre war without in-season testing again, a cost most teams wouldn't be willing to undertake. Without this in-season testing, the tyre performance could be even more inconsistent when everyone turned up to each race with tyres they are unfamiliar with. Its a nice idea, but fundamentally, control tyres are here to stay!!
