pirelli say they will review the tyre situation......if they do I will switch off as reducing the degradation of tyres will effectively hand the titles to redbull and the whining christian horner, it's the same for everyone, you'd think also someone with the brains of ross brawn at mercedes would realise going for pole and being super fast over one lap means nothing in the race this year, manage the tyres in qualifying well = a half decent chance of high point scoring, ask lotus

I believe there were 82...


If they don't reduce the degradation everyone will switch off!!

Spain was a farce. Drivers not defending postions at all and a marussia keeping up with a red bull. Drivers are having to speed up/slow down in corners to keep tyres in the optimum working temperature window.

In its current state F1 is like the Olympics making everyone in the 100m sprint wear Dr Martens to even it out

there were 79 but there has to be a compromise, i think pirelli said in time for the canadian GP there will be change, a combination of last seasons tyres and this, basically they will bring in tyres that will result in a reversion back to 2-3 stops, rather than near on 4 per team (on average)

you want the men in white coats you do!

who cares what happens with the tyres for the rest of the year, its just a stop gap until the whole game changes next year anyway. if you dont like it, lump it - it'll be over soon!

i mean literally, this is a temporary situation - its really not worth getting all pent up about. next year, its likely pirelli will be forced to be conservative because they can't be sure how the new transmissions are going to punish the tyres. they'll be more stable and easier to use and all the focus will move to who can get the turbos and KERS systems working best, the key factor in next year's championship. Interesting development with Honda coming in, 1.6 litre turbos are Honda's bread and butter. might take them a while but I fancy ultimately they'll make best of the era.

haven't had 1 single bet on F1 this year, and haven't watched one race either, having bet on every race last year and watched them all.

Overhyped yes but still dying a death. The lack of posts on here is an indication of where the "sport" is really going. Give me the motor bikes any time.
PS
I'd love to know how much Bernie Ecclestone bungs the media to keep telling the public that F1 is exciting and glamorous.
