You mean prime and option? I think so too... The green colour is just so light!! It is nearly the white colour of the soft tyre :huh:

Yeah, the white is very similar to the green indeed. Maybe they should have made the prime tyre only two or three striped, instead of four. That would be a way to indentify it, because the option would be a lot more green, whereas the prime would only have two green stripes.

Mind you, the whole thing looks like a stupid gimmick, and if it's a boring dry race, then people will laugh at F1 and the fact that the only novelty value in the race was that it had green tyres.

It will be difficult to identify the soft tyre if the race stay dry and under the sunshine.
Why don't they paint all cars to green? :p :p

I think it´s a great idea and it looks absolutely amazing on the Honda, and I used to HATE the Honda, but with these tyres it looks awesome.

No need to slam innovations and creative ideas before the cars even drove 1 mile.
I´m 100% open to these kinds of "innovations".
It´s a 1000 times better to see green or pink tyres than those crappy Herman Tielke tracks with 500 miles of tarmac runoff areas.... :(

You make some good points.Innovation is good,and it is far better to see green tyres than metres of run off in Tilke-dromes.However I still think the concept is flawed.Its not a bad idea,but as I've already explained I don't think its the way to go.Also I agree with Eddie Irvine,Suzuka's a much better track than Fuji.I'd love Suzuka to become the last race of the season again,but even so Suzuka's a great track,better than Fuji,which is a fairly bland,typical modern track,which I don't see as a good thing.

As FP1 is too early for me too, I will skip that one 2, it's 3 in the morning then :blink: . FP2 will be at 7 in the morning, so I will watch that one, and I will be online on the forum I think. If I'm not to lazy to get out of my bed :p . FP3 will be at 4 in the morning here, so I will skip that one 2. The qualifycation will be the same time as FP2, so that won;t be a problem, for the race and all the 'pre' stuff.. It will be early but I'm going out of my bed for it, that's for sure!! :thumbsup:

Yeah, I agree with you mate, I also doubt it that the message can be transfered to the audience and of course regarding the fuel usage F1 still isn´t very "green", but at least it´s a message they´re trying to send out, wether it´s a seriuos atempt or a pr stunt I don´t know :)

And of course, Suzuka is better than Fuji, especially the weather in Fuji is c**p, but F1 and the circuit choice these days stands for itself...Montreal.


btw: the airbox on that Honda is huge! first time I´ve realized that :)

Its a PR stunt.I know I'm pessimistic but I don't believe people in F1 care that much about the environment.I don't see teams actively removing their carbon footprint or producing less emissions.
