F1 » Max Yamabiko: De-constructing Pirelli de-laminations

at last a good assessment of the situation and with merc dismissing pirellis claims of external damage, it would seem that we are approaching a michelin type problem yet again. if the drivers and even the teams now questioning the safety of the tyres, could we see a mass walk out at monza? fia should now stop trying to control the tyres. just tell pirelli to make tyres that will last a race but then dictate that there must be a tyre stop and create a specific pit window for this to be completed in. it works in other formulae, so why not f1?

F1 » Raikkonen: Ferrari doing the right things, but...

ProfessorX: yeah, Kimi looked like he had about 50+ hp less than his teammate. Vettel had no problems keeping the lotus on strat 7 w/ DRS behind him, but Kimi was getting owned by renaults. Hope Ferrari decide to address his lack of luck/preparation/consideration.
The fastest cars on the track were 3 mercs and Kvyats renault.
oh bob. did you miss that red car that was ahead of a number of mercs?

F1 » Furious Vettel fumes at Pirelli after tyre blow

rob01: He was 3 seconds or more off the pace. A true indicator to change the tires.
it was a calculated gamble! he would lose a lot more by stopping for new tyres. this is all part of the calculationd done by all teams. some had two stops, others had three stops, yet seb was still ahead of them. and he was holding grosjean behind him, so was going as fast as a two stoppng merc engined car.

F1 » Arrivabene: One-stop strategy was always Plan A

rob01: For the record. The longest race stint on medium rubber at circuits where the loading is high was done by the much slower Manor car at Silverstone 212 km. Vettel was attempting 210km.
rob. last year, (if i remember correctly) several drivers changed tyres after the first lap, at some races, and did the rest of the race on them, and they lasted!

F1 » Arrivabene: One-stop strategy was always Plan A

andrew cree. not quite true. they did not say that the tyres would only last for short period of time. what they said was that timewise , and getting the best out of their tyres without tehm falling off a cliff, then 2-3 stops could be the most advantageous. but they did say that the tyre would last 40 laps, albeit with not-optimum performance. and if you read arrivabenes comments, 2 hours before the start, it was agreed with pirelli that it was good for a one stopper. seb stretched out his option tyres so as to keep well within the pirelli tyre capabilities.
