No. Any team saying they to drive so far below optimal in order to
manage tyres is not going to be happy.

Webber said after the race, that the RB was running at 80% of it's
potential as the tyres were holding it back.  

That will send shivers down the pit lane.

Why? The tyres are holding *all* of the top teams back - they have become
the limiting factor; The Great Equaliser, doing what all of the other recent
'limiting rules' just couldn't manage.

I would be - if anyone would listen. It's a ***y farce! Why not make them
use chocolate tyres? Wooden? <shakes head> I've lost any respect I ever may
have had for Pirelli as a tyre company over these /things/.

That could be restated as "the RBR cannot run flat out without destroying it's tyres". Same thing, different spin.

Why? They're just delivering what their customer (the FIA) asked for.

I disagree. When in full-heat practices the hard tires are shucking off
giant slabs of *** and the mediums are*** in there, the hards are
defective.  I predict Pirelli redesigns the orange stripers.
