F1 is about going flat out for the entire life of the tyre. The tyre life should be between 33% to 40% total race distance (dependant upon circuit). Gary Anderson (BBC Sport), is totally wrong in my opinion with his conclusions to maintain the status quo of Pirelli's rubber (balls). If F1's tyres allowed "flat out" driving throughout the variable "tyre life", there would still be an advantage for teams whose cars maximised their tyre life potential, and rewarded smooth driving techniques. Today's tyres are ridiculous and denigrate what F! stands for - "The most advance high performance motor racing in the world" Sack Pirelli as quickly as possible. Select 2 tyre suppliers whose role is to compete against each other to a specification of tyre life between 20-25 laps - (at least 2 tyre changes per race) Flat out racing please.
