Just wanted to add to my earlier post, because I didn’t make it very clear: I vastly prefer this season over the past couple of seasons.
Bridgestone did their job amazingly well, following the path they had chosen. But equally, Pirelli are doing what they have chosen to do very, very well indeed. And it’s definitely the latter that is giving us the better racing.
I like that it’s making everyone, including the drivers, think more about what they’re doing. I think most of the drivers in the current field would be able to win the championship in this year’s RBR if they were still using Bridgestones and they could just floor it. On the Pirellis? Not so much. Just look at how much more Webber is struggling than Vettel in the same car, whereas last year they were more often than not separated by mere hundreds of a second.
