Pirelli: the Solution to Create Fuss
"We hope to have at least two tyre changes in every race. We want to try to create more of a
show." By declaring this, Paul Hembery, Pirelli Motorsport's CEO, is clearly announcing,
though subtly the solution to create a fuss around tyres this season.
Beyond the artificial aspect of the question that has already been evoked here, Pirelli is also
covering itself in case the quality of their tyres compared to Bridgestone would be challenged.
The artifice is created through short-life tyres, too short, way too short. We already saw the
parade that happened when Bridgestone demanded to use compulsorily two tyres types, so
here's the new solution. Worse, it is added to this one. Once again, race results will mainly be
influenced by understanding tyres, whereas it should be influenced by managing tyres.
Pity, for Pirelli has lost there one occasion to catch the fans' support. Yet, this would have
been easy. Like creating a consequent gap between option and prime tyres, or - for certain
purists like us - tyres that could work all race long, so as to unleash the drivers' spirits eager to
dare and bet. Pit stops should be the exception and not the rule, as were pit stops that included
So there is much to be sceptical on manufacturers' single-seaters - as never before.
