Pirelli – They started off brilliantly, and as the summer came and went, the races have turned into a predictable 1/2 stop precession, with the tyre stops taking the place of a refuel. We need to have tyres that are blisteringly fast but literally fall apart after the end of 10 laps, and rock hard sloggers that endure the race. And there needs to be no limit on how, why, or when you use them.
Lotus – They promised points this season, their car looked like the real deal, and i’ve been egging them on all the way, but they just haven’t delivered. It doesn’t help that Trulli just isn’t interested any more.
Renault – For the same reasons above but bigger. They started with a big bang. Two podium finishes, and it just went backwards from there. And it’s quickly becoming obvious that Petrov should have been the driver replaced.
Sauber – Once again stuck in reverse with their entirely incomprehensible tyre strategies. Kamui has gone off the boil too. Hopefully they can get back on track next year. And with their car a coat of paint… The palette-swapped BMW livery is dull.
Racecraft – Naming no names, but there’s been some very questionable incidents this year. Some drivers seem to have forgotten how to drive their race cars. Most of these tracks are very wide, and no matteer which bit of them you are on, there’s always certainly the physical space to allow for two cars to travel side by side without hitting each other. Remember that.
Indian Grand Prix – It was dull, wasn’t it.
