So what is the point waiting to clear up the track, then for it to dry out, so your wet tyres are not of use, and you have to pit early for intermediates?
Every team and driver who has cars/set ups for the wet/and using wet tyres was disadvantaged in losing race performance in comparision to the leading cars in the dry like redbull and mclaren. I hope this is not a new trend. I am all for safety, but don't design wet tyres for the racing in the wet, then hide behind the safety car too long, they were out today at least 4-5 laps too long, and that makes and breaks alot of peoples races, probabley effected Vettel and Schumacher's final positions and some other cars.
Canada always see's action and safety cars, but you don't wait too long to completely waste the use of the whole purpose of why there is a wet tyre, to race in the bloody rain, not to pit just after a long safety car period where you had the right tyres to race in.
It's gotta be the worst race effected gp decisions on safety cars this decade. A great race but spoiled with a overuse of the safety car after the red flag, we lost at least 4-5 laps of wet weather tyre running before intermediates was needed. I hope wet tyres can be used for longer in the future. FIA went too safe and soft this time, rain races are a gift for fans and casual viewers, I wonder if Bernie has less power then before.
