Sorry for ranting but like to point out there are other views out there.
With you a 100% GT6. I have heard mankind likened to a viral infection, and the analogy would seem to be correct. Population growth is the real problem and something will have to be done about it, or it will get done in a really unpleasant way whether we like it or not! The current population growth is clearly unsustainable.

Pingguest should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
One could ridicule Formula One's plan to become carbon-neutral, but I think it is good to see the series taking its social responsibility.

Here we go. Tell me that this is not utter madness and a crime to the enviroment:-

Pirelli scraps all 1800 unused F1 tyres from the cancelled GP, because the teams are responsible for transporting the wheels and Pirelli are responsible for transporting the tyres.

And - it "often" scraps 560 unused wet tyres after a dry race.

I always thought it would be easier to recycle or re use tyres. Jim Clark won four GPs on the same Dunlop tyres back in the 60s, so no reason why it canít be done again with the improvement in technology we have had since then. But thatís probably a bit of a dream, but worth considering

Pirelliís shredding of unused tyres was discussed as early as page 1 and later on in this thread. Nothing new here, although appreciate itís a (bored?) journo release specific to the Oz GP.

As for doing 4 GPs nowadays on the same tyres, dream on! I think youíll find construction, materials and compounds have considerably moved on from the 60s..... Not to mention the cars themselves. Or does the poster want F1 to return to those grip and wear characteristics, with several times the horsepower to put down and much heavier cars?

Weren't we in a position recently where tyres struggled to complete four laps, let alone four races?

I think we are still there aren't we....? They certainly lose their edge and peak performance after a few laps. Looking at qualy and they only last one lap.

I don't think they were as bad as they were when Pirelli first returned. They are longer lasting now

The tyres are designed to fail. This is a measure much like DRS, in order to spice up the racing. If they wanted to, they could easily produce a tyre that would last a whole race distance.

At the same time as having tryes designed to fail, and thousands tyres being chucked away unused each season, F1 are making noises about going carbon neutral, which is totally bizarre (to me at least).

Having tires designed to fail is not good from both an economical and sporting point of view, but it does not prevent Formula One from becoming carbon neutral.
