Remark of the day

Does F1 want tyres with excessive put on to provide good racing? No, believes @dbradock…

I’ve stated for some time that the issue with the present tyres isn’t the damage, it’s that their delta isn’t large enough.

In the event that they produced three units with a considerable delta (and corresponding put on), it’d simply get groups to take extra possibilities as an alternative of each single staff adopting the identical method race after race.

If it grew to become extra a matter of two or three stops on softs having the ability to compete with (say) a single cease on medium/exhausting combos we’d probably see some groups roll the cube extra typically and we’d see once more quicker vehicles chopping by a discipline extra typically.

At present there’s simply no likelihood of that taking place as a result of the tyres merely don’t have a large enough differential for lengthy sufficient. DB-C90
