F1 » Pirelli reveals 2016 Australian GP tyre choices

So if the medium and the soft must be used during the race the only way to use another compound is to make at least two stops during the race. based on the number of one stop races last year that isn't much of a change. Any strategy using the third compound has to take into account the compromises to the handling of the car. It's impossible to maximize the chassis using three different compounds especially when Pirelli has promised larger lap time differences between compounds.

F1 » Tyre rule tweaks approved by FIA

Alternative: make one spec of slow circuit tire and one of fast circuit tire, much as they make two wet spec tires. Most races run about 193 miles so make both dry weather tires so you can run them flat out for about 150 miles. Sit back and let the drivers choose how they will race, will they go flat out and pit for new tires or will they manage the tires to last the race distance? This embraces all the "tire" strategies that they have now but its dead simple to understand and adds to the importance of the driver in the overall package. I like anything which makes the drivers the decision-makers rather than the sanctioning body, comm. rights holder or team engineers, it's a purer form of sport.
