F1 » Mercedes tyre test angers rivals

Richard,your taken your thoughts to the extreme with the Mercedes pull-out idea. What I find galling about all this is the way rules can be redefined rewritten or whatever at will. Up till now Pirelli tyre testing has been with and out of season car. It started with Heidfeld in the two-year-old car and now Pirelli are using current drivers in this year's car. F1 is a cynics breeding ground with seemingly no end to the controversies.

F1 » Mercedes tyre test angers rivals

Pirelli did not make the announcement they would changed tyres for Canada until Tuesday 13th of May i.e. when they were smack in the middle of testing tyres with Mercedes, and their drivers Lewis and Nico . So why didn't Pirelli announced the testing arrangements at the same time, and Mercedes are clearly being advantaged by all this. I would like to see Mercedes turnaround what is inherently a poor tyre car, but what looks like cheating isn't the way to do it. This looks like another ghastly episode in F1 history, and something needs to be done. We need full disclosure of everything now.

F1 » Raikkonen: I’ll have options

Lotus is the perfect place for him, but I thought aside from just the pleasure he came back to Formula One to make some serious cash. Now that Kimi has shown he has lost nothing from his F1 absence, and in fact I think is actually better now, he would do well at Red Bull, but not with Vettel in the other car. There's always McLaren I suppose if a seat became available after Whitmarsh has been replaced.

F1 » Whitmarsh: We’re not giving up on 2013

There are 14 races to go, so in theory all the front teams have enough time to jump ahead of the pack, but realistically McLaren and Mercedes are out of it. There can only be one reason why McLaren are sticking with this hapless car, and that is to develop it for 2014. They aren't admitting it at this stage, it would be a total PR disaster to do so.
