  1. I’m as SO bored of listening to constant talk of tyres through every race weekend.

    I don’t watch F1 for tyre strategy. Its such a big part of the racing and,to me, just so dull that I’d like to see it taken out of the equation comletely.

    I’m not so technically minded as many out there so please put me right but could the teams not be given 1 tyre that will give them lots of grip for the full duration of the race, and more. The whole weekend even.

    Also, the prospect of any tyre war just fills me with tread.


  2. There is a pretty leveling field on tyres now. So be happy.
    A tyre to last a whole race, they did that.
    It wasn’t a good idea, to dangerous in fact!

    1. In the good old days they’d use the same tyres across several race weekends!

      That was quite a while ago now tho…
