    Is it just me that’s noticed that every single shot of every single launch this season has the Pirelli tyres so perfectly aligned? I’m sure Bridgestone didn’t demand this…

    I have noticed this – but I think Bridgestone did demand the same. Just browsed a few 2010 launches and they all have bridgestone on the top and potenza on the bottom

    I’m sure I saw one with them on the side of the tyre. I would look for it, but that would require effort which I’m rather short of right now!

    Seems like little effort for plenty of publicity!

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they did request that. Anyone rememver that HRT had one of their tyres on backwards at their launch last year (could have been the right rear)?

    It wouldn’t surprise me if that was simply the ineptitude of HRT :p

    Looks like they set the precedent for the rest of the year then! Oh, I shouldn’t be so cruel on them I guess!

    Here’s the picture, one of them is on the wrong way!

    It really is “no typical”! :P

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Pirelli and Bridgestone demand this, but I’d have thought the teams would want it like that as well.

    It all looks very neat and tidy. If I was Bridgestone last year I may have been glad of an upturned wheel from HRT!

    I don’t know why i’m so harsh on them, they came 11th with no testing…but it’s just so easy.

    Hispania are a joke. They make the sport look bad. They will never score a single, unless they’re sold to someone who has the funding to do it properly. Unfortunately though, they’ve got Glock- and he’s a damn good driver.

    Hispania don’t have glock!?!?!? That would be Virgin!

    Oops, my bad- I’ve just been reading the Virgin Wikipedia article.

    Anyway, all of my other points still stand :D
