    Seems like a weird thing to do, never heard a team complain about the hard compound but apparently it will change.
    Slightly more geared towards last years hard compound.

    I think it has relevance to the punctures Massa and Hamilton had at Bahrain.

    It isn't linked to anything Red Bull have said. Red Bull want the softer compounds to be harder or for the races to use the Harder Compounds instead of the Softer Compounds.

    Increasing the Durability of HARD tire is welcomed to avoid the Problems we saw with Lewis and Felipe . But the soft tire life span must be increased.The durability of Soft tire is around 7 - 10 odd laps (Considering the Q) is very very low. They need to increase it for 60-70 Km so that teams can have Variety of Choice like last year where Mclaren mostly ran the Prime tire but the RBR, Ferrari,Lotus trio ran the Option tire along with Prime tire in their Stints

    I actually agree with Kartik, altough I'm not 100% sure if it is the compound or the tire choice that is/was too aggressive.
    But I'm definitely against a change of the compound during the season because it will favour some teams more than others which would be pretty unfair in my opinion. Only if all teams would give their "ok" I would agree to change something.
