  3. Super soft and Medium for every track,

    DEAL WITH IT :)
    (the teams)
     
  4. Wet and Intermediate Tyres on dry conditions.
     
  5. Soft and Hard for all Races for both Performance and Durability.
     
  6. I want SS and S of every single track. If not please please please brin the 2011 tyres back!
     
  7. 2010 Bridgestone tyres anyone? ;)
     
  8. No mate :D I don't want to see 1 stoppers anymore :) 2011 was incredible because of the tyres, 2010 was a bit boring for me, very predictable...
     
  9. I'm 50/50 on the matter. On one hand, the races are generally brilliant, exciting and unpredictable but at the same time, I apreciate and love to see F1 cars taking corners as fast as possible and to not see drivers on the limit in races is a tad dissapointing. But I'm not complaining :)
     
  10. 3 tyre compounds per circuit. S, M and either H or SS depending on the circuit. Use 2 compounds in race. Also, reduced amounts of each tyre to allow for the extra compound.

    More fun, right?
     
  11. Aren't those the 2012 choices? To my knowledge, the 2013 ones are not known yet and they usually only announce them a few races ahead.
    The 2013 tyres will be easier to warm up and keep in their working window, but also decay faster as well. That means it's going to be impossible to predict which will be the right choices before pre-season testing starts.
    As for 2012 - obviously, in the latter half of the season, all the choices should have been more aggressive.
     
  12. Yes, you are correct. What I want to see is, based on the tyre performance, what you know and what you want, you pick your compounds. For example, I was not happy with the tyres choices of Pirelli for Austin (which were hard and medium). I want to see easier tyre warming and maybe an extra pitstop, so I would bring medium and soft.
     
  13. In My view Until Silverstone the tire choices are Perfect but after that the Game Changed a bit. Some part due to Teams understanding of tires and remaining part due to Conservative approach of Pirelli. Like in 2011 if they bring same sets for all the remaining may have a difference. For Austin i choose Super soft and Soft instead of Hard and Medium.
     
  14. I vote for prime and option at EVERY race :p :whistling:
