    Dude you know i can't let pass an opportunity to bash pirelli. I think you ask these questions for that reason maybe They are $hit, their tires are $hit and so are their excuses.

    The solution should have and could have been very simple. All drivers who make it into Q3 get a new set of which ever is the softer or preferred tire for qualifying. Once qualifying is over they return that set. That would have made every team and driver in Q3 go out and fight for pole or the best grid slot they could get. What $%%$^&&&** pirelli are suggesting is a " special " almost qualifying spec tire for those who make it into Q3.

    You need someone like Max Mosely in this situation. He'd have shoved a rod up every team's a$$ who did not agree. Right now, why should Force India, Toro Rosso, caterhalm agree? Murussia and HRT don't figure in the equation but they won't agree either and nor does Sauber. Quite possibly the Mercedes won't agree either because if an extra set of tires is provided to the top 10 for qualifying, it means they will be more flexiable and get through Q1 and Q2 using any tire. That would mean potentially 8 places in the top 10 are taken, both Mclaren, both Lotus cars, both Red Bull, Alonso and Rosberg and with the way Williams are doing right now and Sauber, from time to time, it means there is no chance for these other teams to get into Q3 especially more so if our friend Massa can get his act together. Mercedes, Sauber and possibly Williams are looking at losing one of it's drivers from Q3, while Toro Rosso and Force India are losing any hope of getting their cars into Q3.

    All this has come about because you are a two bit company who had very limited success against other tire giants when you competed on equal footing with them, you insisted on being the sole tire supplier and had your contract drawn up stipulating that no other tire manufacturer will be allowed for the first three odd years. When you are weak to that extent, you take pressure from everyone and do what they say. Your tires defy laws of physics or chemistry whatever the hell it is, your tires work in a way unheard off and then you go and blame the teams saying they asked for it. Did teams ask for marbles the size of apples and oranges? Did teams ask that you construct tires in such a fashion that it pretty much lays little or no rubber on track, did teams ask that you make a tire, your hard tire, which should actually work in cooler temperature and NOT work well in hotter temperature ? Does that even make sense!

    And finally to come out and say there is no mystery to 2012 tires. Well, as an example this should be explained to me by official pirelli spokesman Steve.

    1. In Oz, Force India is good enough to make it into Q3.
    In Malaysia Force India qualify 14th and 16th.
    In China they qualified 15th and 16th.
    In Bahrian 10th and 13th.

    2. Toro Rosso is good enough to be in Q3 and start 10th and 11th in Oz.
    In Malaysia Toro Rosso is only good enough to qualify 15th and 18th.
    In China, Toro Rosso could only qualify 17th and 18th.
    In Bahrain, Toro Rosso qualifies 6th and 19th.

    3. Sauber, In Oz they were 13th and 17th.
    In Malaysia, 10th and 17th.
    In China, 4th and 8th.
    In Bahrain, 8th and 12th.

    How did these teams gain so much performance and lose it within a week or two only to regain it the following week?

    How can a driver who does 3 extra laps on a set of tires lose 7 places in 1 lap and 12 places in three laps to go from 2nd to finish 14th ( Raikkonen ) and he only finished 14th because the other cars ran out of laps to pass him.

    Then the same driver, because he misses Q3, almost wins the GP a week or two later because he saved a couple of sets of new tires. He almost denies the pole sitter a win because the pole sitter and race leader had the audacity to make it into Q3 and actually stick his car on pole? He should be punished for that?

    Teams asked for this $hit? Teams asked that the performance should drop off a cliff, not a few tenths or half a second or maybe a second but actually go 2-3 seconds off or maybe more?
    Come back, Luca Badoer, all is forgiven.

    @UK
    Quite a long post full off questions that needs detailed replies so I will reply them later, just one suggestion don't base your assumptions on the qualifying positions they are not representing the correct picture, check the times these teams posted in those sessions to think what was happening. I give you only one example, Michal and Rosberg in first 2 races Michal outqualify Rosberg because Rosberg has made some mistakes on flying laps but in China Rosberg pulled a perfect flying lap to get the pole which was 0.5secs clear off Michal's time on that very lap.

    I will reply to your questions about tyres, difference of working between Hard and Soft, what teams asked for how the tyres should work and the deal between FIA and Pirelli later.

    awesome awesome pictures steve..

    @UK,
    agreed with what u've said. but i thought they were making this kind of pathetic tires on request of Bernie or other champions of F1 who thought it would make sport more interesting. it made F1 'exciting' for new casual fans but everybody knows its artificial. my beef with Pirelli is that they don't take stand, they are following orders to the point where they are coming across as almost obsequious ..

    Lotus F1 Team :: Kimi Räikkönen - "Sunday is the priority; that's our focus" [Q&A + Pictures]

    A difficult weekend thus far for Kimi, but as always the Iceman has his eyes on the prize, and all thoughts on the race…<section id="fstCol"><article id="articleBlock" class="block"><figure id="articleIllus">-Formula 1 - Season 2012 - - 7668c6e220a1733c9bd332fa41ae392a</figure></article></section>

    Kimi, P8 on the grid for tomorrow’s race; what are your thoughts on qualifying today?
    To be honest I think we’ve been slightly behind where we wanted to be all weekend. Missing FP1 didn’t help of course but the car itself feels ok; the biggest issue is getting the tyres working. I could have gone a bit quicker on my fastest lap but I locked a wheel in the second part of the swimming pool so unfortunately that lost us some time. Not the best day but Sunday is the priority; that’s our focus.

    Do you think getting the tyres working will be the key factor during the race?
    I don’t think it will have such a big effect in the race as we’re doing much more laps on the tyres; it’s getting them right for a single lap that’s been a bit difficult. We still have a lot to learn with the super soft tyres though as it’s the first time we’ve used them.

    You’ve used up the allocation of super soft tyres already; will this be a handicap in any way?
    Obviously it’s always nice to have fresh tyres but I don’t think it will make a huge difference. Degradation is very low here, and strategies will probably be very similar between the teams. Besides, when you look at the front of the grid it was so close that most people are in the same situation as us.

    Overtaking is notoriously difficult here; how hard will it be to make progress in the race itself?
    You can never tell with Monaco. If we have a completely clean race then it will be tricky to improve but anything can happen here; especially if the weather changes. For sure we expected to be in the top five today and that would have made things easier, but the race could always bring a few surprises…

    @m_waqas
    I could understand that you have not watched the qualifying but come on if you have watch all the posts in this thread between your last reply and this reply you could easily tell which helmet is which driver's.

    Kimi's Helmet is black as he is paying tribute to James Hunt while Grosjean's Helmet is golden.

    No, UK is not right and neither is you, F1 is exciting not because of tyres, Pirelli is doing business they were asked to do something and they have did it exactly like they are being asked. You both are reminding me of the Father and Son story who tries to make happy everyone but only make their own life miserable in trying that.

    Controversy brewing up in Monaco regarding Red Bull. Their new floor has a hole that other teams think does not conform to regulations. Three teams Mclaren, Ferrari and Mercedes are not happy with it.

    Watching Ross Brawn being interviewed just now it seems that the result might be appealed in the event of Red Bull winning the race. Brawn didn't put it that clearly but when asked that Horner had said the hole had been on their car for some time now, his reply with a smile was " being on the car for a long time and being legal are two different things. We will see after the race "

    The other bit of news is that it has started raining in the mountains around Monaco. Still some distance away from the track though.
    Come back, Luca Badoer, all is forgiven.
