F1 » Pirelli looking into ‘super-super soft’ compounds for 2016

The fact that Pirelli can deliver safe tires with barely any testing on-track is a significant achievement. This lack of testing is a constant theme with Hembrey and one that the FIA would do well to address as the F1 cars continue to become faster with each season of the new formula. If the new proposed regulations for 2017 do make the cars 6 seconds faster per lap the performance of the tires will be increasingly affected by the amount of track time Pirelli can get to develop them.

F1 » Tyre companies shouldn’t dictate strategies, teams say

A whole lot of mixed signals here. Saying every team must have imput into the tires and then turning around and saying the teams don't care, they just mount the tires they are given is just silly talk. The tire manufacturers with decades of research and production experience behind them surely are better equipped to make a safe and fast tire than the FOM, FIA and all the teams combined. Throwing about something as nebulous at "Make the show better" is way too subjective as a goal. Really, what benefit has the sport derived from the teams' groupthink up to now? They have succeeded in trashing Pirelli reputation as a tire-maker, I'll give them that.

F1 » Tilke rejects blame for boring F1 races

While Herr Tilke makes a good point about the tech regs contributing to the problem it's interesting to see the failed circuits Tilke has designed and note that they were only used for a few races and abandoned. All in new markets which didn't embrace F1 or his circuits. It's obvious that not any measurable market research was done by FOM beyond counting the money.
