F1 is getting itself into dangerous territory now. It seems like faster drivers like Hamilton, Kobayashi and Hulkenberg are now being overlooked for tyre men like Perez and Button. Especially with Pirelli continuously making the compounds even more and more ridiculous every season and changing the tyres massively, even when the teams ask for some stability.
Pirelli have produced better tyres for the racing, but their lack of stability is too much. I think it's time for them to step aside and let someone else come in, someone who can still produce the goods, but also provide some stability to the sport.
It's not helping with the cost reduction either when drastic changes keep being made year on end. They have simply gone too far...
But with the modern breed of fans I'm sure everyone is dying for Pirelli to massively change everything and have things as the lottery as they were in the beginning of the season again. And that's one thing I'm worried about Pirelli, not just their consistency from season to season, or even race to race. But sometimes it feels like certain teams are getting better tyres than others within a Grand Prix. They'll make a batch for a GP weekend but some will be better than others, and the lottery aspect comes in as it's random as to who gets what set.
It's not quite right...
Edit: So to answer your question, please no. But 2013 is going to be another crazy start to the season, perhaps moreso than 2012. I'll expect one of the newer 2010 teams to score at some point in 2013 thanks to Pirelli.
