That's an abhorrent statement. Hembery is basically saying that it doesn't matter who builds the best, fastest, most reliable car. Because Pirelli will make sure that they don't win.
Your definition is incomplete. "Best, fastest, most reliable car"... "for the given rules". This year rules use Pirelli 2013 tyres, which are the same for everyone. It's like Vettel saying "We are not going to the pace of the car, we are going to the pace of the tyre.". So what happened with the other teams doing better, have they a different tyre?
So fun when things are not going their way
By the way, these are the pit stop numbers for 2011. They were not so whiny then, with the same amount of stops. I wonder why.
