Aditya-now, you were doing pretty well until you had to go in on the very last line and spoil it!
Tell me, where has MS told Pirelli he wants tires specced to HIS specific requirements?
He hasn't has he? So you just posted that line to have a bash at him.
It's a spec tire series, if Pirelli produce tires that can be "raced hard' for 15 laps, it WILL be the same for all drivers, depending upon their skill & their car. THAT is the crux of what MS said he wants them to do and it's a light year away from what you consistently & incorrectly would like people here to believe.
MightyMoose, thanks for giving me at least once the chance for having a cultured discussion with you.
I think that everyone in the paddock is aware of the fact that Michael had his tires tailored to him for
years (with the notable exception of 2005) and that now he has the same tires like everyone.
It is true that the line "he wants the tires tailored to his needs" is my assumption, for we do not know
what exactly was spoken in the Pirelli motorhome. In any case, a man of Schumi's stature exerted a
certain pressure on Pirelli, which is notable.
Also notable, how other drivers do not take the same line, and how especially Hamilton has obviously
changed his course this year, and his WDC standings show for it, no matter what they did to him during
the pit stops.
High regards to Lewis for his words, and still amazement at Michael Schumacher. It's the same rules for everyone, and it's the same tires for everyone. How some adapt and get on with it without lamenting is what makes the difference.
Is this bashing in your eyes?

Tell me, where has MS spoken the above lines? This is how you interpret it ("the crux of what MS said") and you tend to deny me my right to make my own observations reading between the lines of what Schumi is really saying.
