I have faith that Ross Brawn will sort this out, it will take time of course ..

Given that he is an aerodynamicist and was involved with the OWG (Overtaking Working Group) which got us into the mess we're in, I am sure he is just what F1 needs!


Hope over experience Jeremy?

Apparently Pirelli have a problem producing tyres that recover once overheated. I found this very interesting:

http://www.motorsportmagazine.com/op...roblem-another

"There is a theory out there that the chemical constituents needed to get the rubber liquid enough to be extrudeable (as in toothpaste from a tube) in Pirelli’s highly automated Istanbul plant are the very ingredients that cause the tyre to permanently harden when it becomes too hot. The chemical links that allow the polymers to be long (and the rubber therefore bendy) break down. If this is indeed the case, then the only way to prevent the phenomenon whilst retaining this production process would be to make a tyre with a less stressed contact patch – either by increasing the size of the contact patch or making the compound tough enough that it never got close to the ‘frying’ threshold. Or both. But that would then risk making for a tyre with performance that didn’t degrade at all…
That might be exactly what we now have."

And the drivers are saying that despite the improvement in wet tyres, inters overheat too quickly. And Pirelli say that they may need to make more changes to wet tyre to get to the standard this is required

Pirelli to drop the 'hard' compound option for the British GP.

https://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/f...ish-gp-907313/

after listening to concerns of the drivers and teams, Pirelli have acted in very quick fashion to address the teams' issues and without the usual very public recriminations from either side...kudos to Pirelli and the new F1!

Or maybe look for a different supplier with a superior production process.

I am glad things are being sorted out the right way in this new F1, it's gaining more credibility

For the general viewer, this seems like a good time to shift each tyre up one grade, so the medium is now called 'hard' and ultra becomes 'super'? It feels wrong to have 3 types of soft tyre, and no hard.
