I agree that the tyre failures are too many. But the compounds should not be changed. In 2012 we were promised tyres like this, but they lasted too well. This resulted in RedBull being able to violate the tyres without any downsides. There was no benefits from saving the tires like this year. So Ferrari suffered from having designed a car for more vulnerable tyres. This year Ferrari got it right with the tires and RedBull can't just focus only on downforce. The tyres should not be changed because RedBull and Mercedes hasn't managed to design a car to the tyres. What could be interesting could be if Pirelli brought three different compounds to each race and keep the rule of having to use at least two different compounds during the race. Then there are more ways to go. If you can't make the soft tyres last, then have a try on the two harder compounds...
