That is a self defeating argument bro. You are the biggest advocate of bringing extreme tires to races to spice up the show. One mistake, one mistake is all that should be held against a tire giant? That was a mistake, if we go down that route, the ethical, rather unethical things that Bridgestone did, which made almost all big teams leave them and switch to Michelin, should make you really hate Bridgestone.
Btw, what American rules do you keep talking about? An F1 race is run under F1 rules. I am in no way saying a chicane should have been made as was suggested, and would have been the "normal" , " sane" thing to do. Obviously, that is not how FIA worked especially if it was not favoring Ferrari.
No, its not a self defeating argument, Yes I want bigger difference in tyres, but it doesnot means to have tyres that are one lap wonder and drivers can't do another lap on that. In Indy 2005, Michelin's collected data was predicting those tyres could last only 10 laps, and teams have to pit almost 7 times if they compete in that race.
FIA have allowed them to change tyres during the race on the safety reason but it is a known fact that with that many pitstops neither Michelin tyres using team would be able to compete for the win or even podium. Plus just tell me how it is possible to bring such tyres in a race where the season regulations don't allow you to change tyres during the race.
Ralf's Toyota accident in the practice session was because of another stupidity by the team itself, they were using lower tyre pressure then Michelin told them to use and it had nothing to do with what happens on the raceday.
As for your saying about F1 race was going to held under FIA regulations, are you saying that FIA can change any circuit lay out on the race day because of any team's request. If thats the case then why teams not requested for such things every now and then in F1. Teams and Drivers have boycotted races for lack of safety measures but never asks to change the lay out just before the race day.
It is hilarious to think that the company on who's recommendation FIA has gone for a single tyre for the whole race rule was not able to manufacture a tyre which could last the whole GP distance. Michelin have brought a Indy spec tyres first on which Ralf suffers the accident, and those tyres were not good so they have to bring urgent delivery of Barcelona spec tyres overnight for the qualifying and race but they were also not suitable for the circuit.
All the teams using Michelins have to cut down revs coming on the fast Turn 13 and it was looking like in the race they become easy prey for overtaking, Michelin comes up with the chicane before Turn 13 idea which was not accepted by FIA and Bridgestone runners.
At the grid all the teams have agreed to pull in after the warmup lap but just before the warmup lap Bridgestone runners were told to take the grid instead of coming in because one of them wants to race and that one was not Ferrari but a certain Idiot own team known as Jordan.
The race was becomes a farce and only six cars started the race both Ferrari's takes the 1-2 finish, while the team responsible for that farce takes the last podium. That team got so much bad publicity that a year later they were present with a different name and that changing of name happens for 3 continuous years before Indian businessman Vijay Mallaya bought them and name them as Force India.
It was revealed months later that Bernie wanted to run the race even if only 2 cars are present on the grid, just to avoid paying back to the spectators who are there to watch the race.
FIA was so annoyed with that they change the rule of tyre usage to old style from 2006 while return of single tyre supplier started a year later with Bridgestone was choosen for that purpose. Michelin left the F1 world at the end of 2006 saying there is not enough possibilities of tyre development in F1.
