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

The fact remains that Pirelli has asked repeatedly for more track testing of the tires and the FIA and the teams have rejected their pleas. The failures are squarely on the FIA and teams' shoulders and it's time for them stop paying lip service to safety and spend the time and money to make sure their drivers, team members and the public have safe tires during future F1 races.

F1 » Rosberg coy on Pirelli ‘gagging’ order

Nico's reticence suggested that the drivers were indeed asked not to voice criticism at Pirelli publicly. The drivers have over the past few years spoken publicly about Pirelli's performance and it seems to me that is because either Pirelli didn't want to talk privately with them or did and then nothing came of it. Pirelli must respect the driver's imput about the tires they have to compete on if they want those same drivers to not voice their frustrations publicly. Of course, the root cause of all these problems is the use of two different tires during the races, a marketing exercise run amuck, which has been one of the principle causes of the decline of F1 as a competition.

F1 » Horner speculates run-off confidence causing tyre cuts

The FIA's lacklustre enforcement of the rules concerning racing outside the bounds of the circuit is endangering drivers and track workers. Since it is no longer viable to use physical barriers (high curbs, no run-offs, walls etc.) to keep drivers on-track the dangers that used to instill discipline needs to be replaced by ENFORCED penalities for racing off-course. HRC has a good idea which would have the advantage of removing the stewards from the penalty assessment making it more fair to all. Otherwise the use of larger curbs which might cause shunts which would be absorbed by the large run-off areas might "encouage" the drivers to stay within the bounds of the racing surface.

F1 » Rosberg airs concerns over Pirelli tyres ahead of Monza

The teams want it both ways. When the tires are reliable they complain that Pirelli is too conservative and when the teams push the tires too far they blame Pirelli for "risky" tires. Either way Pirelli is always the villain! Until the FIA and teams commit to financing proper track testing for the tires there is no solution to this mess. I wonder why Pirelli still wants to continue in F1!
