Have a problem with something in F1? Think Bernie is an ass? Do you want Paul Stoddard to disappear? Well then, here's your soapbox. (Don't turn this into a whatever v F1 flame war!) I'll get things going here 1. Tires. The news tires rules allow for one set of tires to last for both qualifying sessions, and the entire race. One tire can be changed no questions asked, they can also be changed for safety reasons (cut sidewall presumably, and punctures), and if Charlie Whiting declares a Change of Conditions. This was put it place to reduce costs, but all it seems to have done so far is reduce the amount of passing for position (which F1 has been criticized for in the past, usually wrongly though). It also seems to have caused a few incidents already. Mark Webber and Giancarlo Fisichella came together at one corner this past weekend, due in part to Giancarlo losing the rear end of his car, thanks mostly to having little grip at the rear. (few drivers had much left of the four treads on their rear tires after the race anyway). The new rule also caused the retirement of Rubens Barrichello, who picked up some debris after Kimi Raikkonen's right rear blew. That disturbed the aerodynamics of the car (and F1 cars are very sensitive to an aero imbalance), thus making his tires turn into round, black, blocks of inflated crap. My solution: one tire supplier (hey Goodyear! ), one set for quali, also used to start the race (like the previous two years), and at least one tire change during the race. More from me tomorrow, so now it's your turn.
