Pit Pass / Re: F1 Teams Reject Pirelli's Proposed Tires for 2020
« Last post by Jericoke on December 13, 2019, 03:23:57 PM »
How has Pirelli managed to make a worse tyre than last year? I'd expected at least one team to prefer the 2020 version than last year (most likely Haas, who hated the 2019 tyres, but apparently hate the 2020 ones even more).

I presume the FIA gave them some very bizarre specs and the Pirelli engineers just  :DntKnw: and made what they were asked for.

It's also possible they intentionally made a bad batch of tires so they wouldn't have to change their processes for 2020.  (Seems risky, if that were to get out, that would be a black eye for all involved, and a good way to get your contract revoked.  So I doubt this happened.)

Boy, didn't look this up either, but I have a memory of a driver using the number 0 when he replaced a reigning champion the next season.

Damon Hill replaced Nigel Mansell, who went to Indycars as reigning 1992 F1 champion, and was immediately awarded #0. He had it again following Senna's death (because he was entered as Williams team leader in subsequent races).

The city is Montreal, which is in the province of Quebec, which is about 7x as large as the entire UK.... :swoon:

There is a city also called Quebec, but it doesn’t host the GP.

Carry on...

I should have known better than to make that error   :fool: Thank you for correcting me, Jeri!

I approve of the Winter Grand Prix plan Scott produced.

I'd love to see an F1 demo at Carnaval! We've seen test runs of F1 cars on ice. 

What about a short Winter F1 series: a race at Carnaval in Quebec, one in Finland, and a third in Green Bay Wisconsin?  I'm sure Jacques Villeneuve Sr (Gilles' brother), Kimi and Mika would be on board!

I would prefer they shorten, not lengthen the sweet spot operating range.  They can take away refueling, but I would like SOME team strategy, and not just the dash in at the end to throw on a second pair of tires just because the rules say they have to.

Speaking from my own visits, Monza and Barcelona do a pretty decent job of getting fans from inexpensive hotels downtown to the tracks.  Usually a bit of a hike at the end, but I kind of like a twenty minute or so walk to the track...helps build the anticipation.
