    schumacher very critical of the pirelli tyres –
    http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/99103

    there was some critisism of them on skys post race from brundle & hill.

    have to say i agree with them, i want to see cars racing hard & not cruising about saving tyres.
    also feel the amount of marbles these tyres throw off is affecting races negatively, kimi said on sky that he didnt pull out more to pass vettel in turn 1 because he would have got the tyres dirty on the marbles.

      I have a quote here from Raikkonen which says “I only had one chance to overtake Sebastian (Vettel) and unfortunately I chose the wrong side to try and get past”. Sounds to me like he’d have been happy to send one up the inside on the marbles, he just chose to go the other side.

      I do wonder if drivers use marbles as a bit of an excuse some times. We saw some great off-line passes this weekend. Check out Esteban Gutierrez’s pass at turn 11 on the last lap of the GP2 feature race, for example.
