Oops, sorry. I was looking for the toilets and stumbled in here by mistake
i dont for a minute believe that lessons learnt at gp level benefit us on the road or track.
banning traction/launch control is the one thing i would like to see
I'd definately go along with that, it'd remove another excuse for the Rossi brigade to bitch about (doesn't everyone have it anyway????) and on a more positive note would make the tyre manufacturers work even harder still so even better tyres to come.
Good work, for a moment it was beginning to look like the adults might have a conversation without being interrupted by a Rossi argument.
Not fair comment, I made the point as it's relevant to the discusssion. Everyone I've spoke to at both Michelin and Dunlop are quite happy with things as they are, and to the best of my knowledge the same applies at Bridgestone.So why change?
banning traction/launch control is the one thing i would like to see and it will be interesting to see how much it alters next years F1 racing

The argument that we'd have rubbish tyres if we had one-make series is simply flawed. Advancements in materials and construction will continue regardless. It's the nature of the marketplace.
Not really, even top club races aren't decided by tyres to the level MotoGP can be. If you've got the skill and the bike you can win on any top brand tyre.On the road it's irrelevent.So in MotoGP this year Bridgestone overtook Michelin, yes?Thus had Michelin been the control tyre this year, some races would have been won at a pace 30+ seconds slower, yes?And that's just one year, think of that over ten, fifteen, twenty years.So Michelin are forced to work harder to close the gap.Necessity is the mother of invention.
