F1 'no longer real racing'

PIRELLI 'RUINING' F1? Red Bull's Dietrich Mateschitz and drivers Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber have expressed their concerns that Pirelli's 2013 tyres are detrimental to the sport.

Red Bull team owner Dietrich Mateschitz has admitted his frustration with the dominant role being played in 2013 by Pirelli's fast-degrading Formula 1 tyres.

Red Bull has not hidden its displeasure with the situation, putting pressure on F1's Italian tyre supplier to make mid-season changes.


Pirelli, however, has made only a minor tweak to its "hard" compound, and that's for the Spanish GP.

Mateschitz said: "F1 no longer has anything to do with 'classic' racing. Today it's not the fastest driver in the fastest car winning but the one with the optimum tyre management.

"We've even had to scale down our car because the tyres were not lasting. If we really went as fast as we can, we would need 10 to 15 pit stops."
