My tyre wishlist:
1. Drop the C1 compound
2. Revert back to two dry compounds per GP
3. Introduce compound gaps on occasion
4. Scrap the Q2 tyre rule
(i.e. basically what we had from 2007-2014)
Having only five compounds in the range and bringing any given three to a race is far too wide a selection. The hardest compound at any given race is often capable of three quarters distance.
We need races to be run on the Soft and Medium for more pitstops and "better" strategies. They will never scrap the three compound rule because 3>2, so I suppose all they can really do is make the hardest compound two steps harder than the Medium, as to discourage the teams from using it.
You hear quite often "just bring softer compounds!", but you can't turn up at Spa with the C5, it's unrepresentative and probably dangerous.
From the announced selection and historical data, barring weather, VSC/SC, crazy tyre pressures, it will be 1 stops everywhere apart from Bahrain, Spain, Hungary, Japan, Brazil, USA. Zandvoort and Saudi unknown.
