My point is that the tyres are what they are and teams should deal with them rather than voice complaints (I believe Raikkonen also made the same comment). Pirelli also commented that they could easily make tyres to have the same characteristics of the old Bridgestone era, but that they were just following the customer's orders (the FIA). Certainly the comments from rbr have attracted more attention than those from other teams - they are, after all, the current champions, so one would expect this - and maybe as champions their voices carry more weight. But, should the revised tyres result in RBR returning to their dominant position, you can be sure that there will be a wave of complaints about the fairness (or lack of), of the changes. And whilst they (rbr) might not have complained directly to Pirelli, they have made their feelings known in the public domain - which is probably a more effective way of getting your message across.
