Russia flooded in 2021 while they were already prepping the garages. They will be fine.
From a marketing standpoint, what does Pirelli get out of it? All you hear is the tires won't switch on, they wouldn't get in the right operating window, the deg killed, the tires were finished after a lap. Are they tires or are they cheeze wheels?Tire construction is a tough business in racing. The tires have to be built to withstand massive loads and heat but be able to put on a good show as well. The casual fan might not understand why tires are degrading so much if they’re designed to wear.
In Michelin’s case they’re known as the best tire supplier in the sports car world with tires that can be double- and triple-stinted if need be, and in Audi’s infamous case at Le Mans in 2011, even quintuple-stinted. Pirelli are seemingly okay with building single-stint use tires, even in the sports car series they supply, but they often wind up catching flack in F1 for tires that either wear too much or too little. It’s a tough balance to attain when the series requires use of multiple compounds and different levels of grip/wear.
Forgot it was Michelin who had the debacle at the US GP in 2005. They dominated that season (that was their only loss) but were probably remembered most for that “race”.
I remember that race, it was almost as bad as Mosley in a Nazi sex video.Forgot it was Michelin who had the debacle at the US GP in 2005. They dominated that season (that was their only loss) but were probably remembered most for that “race”.
Interesting that that season without any tire changes was their best.
Max' father was a member of the nazi party during the way. I believe he was head of the British nazi party. You might think the FIA would have bounced him over the nazi hooker thing, but instead they gave him an overwhelming vote of confidence.I remember that race, it was almost as bad as Mosley in a Nazi sex video.
The inaccurate reporting is just as bad in motorsports as it is in politics. Penske wasn't going to buy IMS and Indycar just to flip it.Liberty was one of the finalists to buy the series and IMS a few years back, but it sounds like Windsor is way late on this or talking out of his ass. Penske already denied the rumors of them selling it a couple of weeks back and if they did, they wouldn’t sell to someone who wants to make it a feeder series. That idea doesn’t even make sense to begin with, F2 barely graduates drivers to F1 as it is now and it’s not like teams want the grid to expand.
