Abu Dhabi will be the last race for Bridgestone as the tyre supplier for F1.

In the spirit of bad publicity is also publicity, would there be a better scenario for Bridgestone than to have the tyres decide who becomes WDC?

I can't think of going out with a bigger bang then having Alonso getting a puncture in the penultimate lap and losing the lead and championship.

Yeah I was thinking this too, it would be awesome if they went to Abu Dhabi with some kind of crazy tyres, and surprised all the teams.

Never going to happen :p

No they didn't, hopefully Pirelli tyres are more 'racey'.

They did try mixing super soft and hard, but when the softest can often last the race Bridgestone shot themselves in the foot.

Yeah, you might want to call the Firestone PR department on that one.

Pirelli have said they will be going down a more aggressive route with the tyres to improve the racing. The more races like Canada this year the better :)

Only if the teams agree with it and won't be slamming the tyres every race because they don't last

Yeah, for good show I think they should bring only full wets this time (1set per driver for whole weekend).

How about this:

Webber is running 1st. Vettel 2nd. Alonso 3rd.

Massa 11th, slow as crap and about to get lapped by the leaders. Massa's right rear blows right as Webber is about to pass and Massa T-bones Webber, taking them both out. Alonso wins the championship.

:lol: :wave:

I think that Bridgestone should bring the same tires they had in Montreal. That would spice things up.

or how about a torro rosso locks up due to cold tyres (because the are too hard), takes out alonso. Vettel and Webber see what happens and there comes a massive, the winner taking the championship.

They have done it many times, but the track surface/layout gave more tyre wear there than usual.
