sp3 (interesting choice of name....remember the dunlop sp3?)
the problem is that pirelli exceeded the brief. this has now been confirmed by bernie and even pirelli themselves yes, they were asked to make a tyre that would last at least 20 laps, to ensure that there were 2 pitstops, but the compound they used, saw the tyres going off after 2-3 laps. that is why cars were trying to preserve their tyres by driving slowly. pirelli have now altered their compounds, not due to any one team objecting, but due to the fact that the tyres were not performing as required. i believe that the fia have been involved due to the public outcry, and not before time!
the teams were not provided with the compounds being used, for testing, so NO team was able to design a car specifically for the current tyre.
