The problem Pirelli face is supplying a tyre that suits 11 teams equally at 20 different venues. Having the 4 different compounds takes the one variable out the equation, but not the important one of the teams. As we've seen, Ferrari & Renault are easier on the tyres, while Red Bull & Mercedes are harder. So, when Pirelli choose harder compounds for events it favours some teams, & when they select softer compounds those same teams are at a disadvantage. As a result Pirelli are always doing wrong by some team & having to put up with the bad press. The only fair solution would be to allow the teams to each 'order' any 2 of the 4 compounds for each event. If teams get it wrong, it's then their own fault. It may mean that Renault compete using Med & S-Softs on the same weekend as Merc use Hard & Soft, but because of how the cars use the tyres both qualifying & the race should be fair.
