agreed, Pirelli have done well this year.

of course as the season went on, teams figured it out and started extracting more life from the tires but i also think Pirelli has done well to keep pace with the team development. also think they made a good choice in dropping the harder compound after Spain(i think?).

that said, i havent seen much written about Pirelli and/or what influence the tire choices were making in regards to Vettel/Ferrari's early season race pace and/or Hamilton/Merc's lack of it?

rather how much did the tires play a part?

"So, we have done well given our starting point, we were unable to finish the task. It's a 2018 objective now. We regret not having done better, but the car is there – it's in my view the best car on the track today

Funny that, I also said the same thing a few weeks back.
Cool. Well done. Guess we've found our new Ferrari boss!

Mechanical problems happen, but it would be easier if Vettel hadn’t thrown away a couple of wins

Team boss says his team and/or car is best. News at 11. McLaren has best chassis, red bull best aero, etc etc.... What else should we expect the team boss to say? "The driver is great, we suck as a team and our car and Ferrari engine sucks"?

Pretty much exactly what Sergio Marchionne was saying mid last year.
