If Pirelli needs to start now to have the 2014 tires ready on time, how long would it take for a newcomer to start from scratch and develop 4 different dry compounds plus inters and full wets?

While Mercedes seems content to skip the young drivers test and end the issue of illegal testing, Pirelli is said to be furious at being dragged before the FIA Tribunal, saying under the terms of their contract they committed no wrong. They are considering bringing suit against the FIA for breach of contract. Todt's preferred firm Michelin is said to be ready to provide tires for 2014. I don't think we have heard the last of this.

Neither do I.

I get the impression that the FIA is trying to call Pirell's bluff, and make them throw in the towel, so that they can offer the contract to another supplier.  In view of how poorly Michelin was treated by the FIA in the past though, I'd be surprised if they were willing to make a return.

Given the way FIA has been conducting themselves specially with the tyre issue, says a lot about the mismanagement as well power struggle in FIA. But I think the appeal of the sole supplier of F1 tyres and thus the following PR is simply too much to ignore for the tyre companies.
So even though they were badly treated, Michelin will surely set them aside and begin a new endevour

That is ironic that of all suppliers the FIA might have up their sleeve, it is actually Michelin.  Suckers for punishment, I guess.  :DntKnw: :DntKnw:
