Alonso is complaining again, this time about tyres...

February 28, 2011

Ferrari's Fernando Alonso is now complaining yet again. But this time it is not over a 'slow' russian, its over 1 of the best tyre makers in the world apparently making rubbish tyres. He says their tyre duribility is poor, and will affect major teams. I personally think it is a good thing that poor tyre duribility is a good thing, and will improve racing. Alonso said "From what we have seen so far, degradation is very significant, which means we will have races with lots of pitstops. I'm not keen on that because I think this increased uncertainty does not favour the strongest teams.It's as if in football, it was decided to have a penalty per team each half hour in which case Barcelona and Real Madrid would not be jumping for joy.However, the situation is the same for everyone: it will be important to be fastest because I don't think we can make one stop less than our main rivals."
