Good GP and everything but those soft tyres are ridiculous. I don't mind having tyres that make drivers think about their strategy because it's an aspect of motorsport and I'd hate to see indestructible tyres because it takes away one of the aspects of being a top racing driver. I thought Pirelli had hit the jackpot in 2011 but since then have been told to make tyres which basically manufacture results.
Last year to me was the worst because of how many different drivers won. Even in the most competitive of sports, you'd expect a top driver to have nabbed a second win. Even Maldonado got a win because he was the only guy to perfect tyre strategy. It was too much strategy vs speed.
This year appears to be heading in a similar direction. 3 different winners. I suppose there is a difference for the positive. It feels like less of a lottery. The same guys are appearing at the front and to be fair, in China the top 5 finishers were all of the world champions suggesting that perhaps the tyre situation isn't as bad as you'd think. After all, if your top finishers are all of the world champions, wouldn't that suggest a race result broadly based on ability rather than the car or the tyres?
