If we get an 8th winner this weekend I'm calling bullshit.

In ref. to the posted link how FiA allocates tires...
It’s childishly simple for Hembery to help McLaren, if he really wanted to. I am not saying he does it, but during a friendly drink, in a general discussion, tire's next optimal range might come out as a general interesting subject - sort off BTW Martin, we have an interesting season, don't you agree? Just wait next race for we will run it at x/y parameters, and let’s wait who wins it?
As an alternative, why not make a tire which really suits a particular team; no need to exchange smoke signals at the whiskey bar. You children are so naive to trust, that there is "no way" to help someone, if you really want to. But then, for fun, I am speculating, of course.

If you actually look at how each race panned out, you will see that the different winner everytime was not even so much down to tyre windows as series of other errors / penalties and circumstances.

Looks like Pirelli have started bringing in very conservative tyres as not to be embroiled in the title fight.

This is ruining the race, another 1 stop strategy means the first 3 laps will decide race! I expect Hamilton or Webber to win!

Hope all those who criticised Pirelli for being a major factor in the race are happy with the sunday snorefest!

:rotfl: No doubt the whiners will point at the fact Hamilton is the first driver other than Vettel in about 4 races to look like winning, and say everything is fine. Despite the racing being absolutely shocking on these Tilke carparks. The babies didn't like anyone shattering their delusions that Lewis, Alonso and Vettel were far and away the three best drivers, rather than just in the best cars for the last few seasons.

1. Bernie calls Marco at the end of 2011 and tell him that FIA will check up the Red Bull cars more sevierly.
2. Marco implements inferiority principle where Newey suffers from un sharp wind tunnel corelation.
3. Season goes on and Marco diches the principle during summer holiday.
4. Red Bull improves
5. Vettel runs away.
6. Bernie calls Marco and tell him that FIA is ready on action.
7. Vettel gets bad qualify result in Abudhabi.
8. Farrari messes it up big time and fails to come in front of Vettel.
9. Bernie calls Charlie and to be tough.
10. Charlie does it and DQ Vettel.

How will it ends up?
Bernie will NOT call Marco during rew nor suggests abnormality.
Marco will NOT react to none of Bernie's question.
Vettel to race on.
Alonso to race on.

haha

Pirelli is blaming the track characteristics for low tire wear. Do you think they're saying this since there's an outcry about boring racing?

Interesting thread. If I found out it was true I'd stop watching immediately. I'd therefore prefer to believe they wouldn't do this.

You've got to wonder why the teams can't get on top of the tyres though....

One question. Are the four tyres of a the cars identical, or are they specifically made for one corner of the car?
