Except you are required to run at least two of them. Wait....... the "option" tire is mandatory?Not sure I agree with you on the tire thing, there are 3 types and they are specifically engineered for their individual optimum performance, this is a good thing.
What team in their right mind would deliberately put the wrong tire on unless the rules called for it?
Maybe it's just me, but I'de rather see the race instead of managing deg. I also despise pit stops because it's easier to under/overcut than it is to execute a clean pass. Pit stops break up the racing, and I think we would all rather see them wheel to wheel passing each other on the track instead of while one of them is stopped.Just think how more boring some races would be if it wasn't for a tire strategy.
If you want to offer them 2, 3, or even 10 different compounds, let them run what they want to run when they want to run it. I'de rather see less strategy and more wheel-to-wheel action.
Formula One cars were racing a full Grand Prix distance 50 years (or more) ago. I don't believe Pirelli can't make a tire that does not last two hours. If you want to see what these tire companies are capable of, look to endurance racing and all the triple stints they run on Michelins. Al Unser sr won the 1987 Indianapolis 500 on a single set of Goodyear Eagles. It's hard to believe 35 years later we can't make a tire that will run an entire GP.
My opinion is racing is ruined with fake things like the tire game and DRS. Ditch those things and let's get back to being real.
