Tyre company Michelin promises tyres that will let grand Prix drivers race faster if it wins the tender to supply F1 from 2017.
Michelin versus Pirelli-drivers have mixed opinions?
In my opinion it appears that the drivers are having to think more into their tyres, than they think necessary.
Some race pundits think this is a good thing because it brings other aspects into the races and makes winning more skillful.
The Michelin versus Pirelli confrontation came along when Michelin began to show interest in F1 racing a couple of years ago. The interest has grown as the deadline for the new F1 tyre tender becomes closer.
One of the recent tyre problems has been ,how many races or laps could be achieved on the same tyres.
The Michelin versus Pirelli arguments and claims will go on right up
to the tender time. Pirelli say that they have only produced the tyre that they were asked to produce. Michelin on the other hand are saying that their tyres could offer more calculated lap times per tyre.
In my opinion the race to supply the new F1 race season will hot up, with new claims and counter claims.
It will be interesting which of these tyre giants will win the Michelin versus Pirelli battle ahead to supply F1 with their tyres in the coming years.
