maybe it doesn't suit rosberg ...but what if it suits Schummi? and what if it doesn't? Will Schummi walk away from F1 before the season starts?

Nico Rosberg doubts the new Pirelli tyres will do anything to ease the difficulties Mercedes suffered with front-tyre grip on the 2010 Bridgestones, after the Formula 1 teams tried the 2011 rubber for the first time in Abu Dhabi today.

Mercedes had struggled to adapt to the performance of the front Bridgestones this season, and this issue cited as a major factor in Michael Schumacher's disappointing comeback.

From nico_rosberg's twitter:
Pirellis-similar to bridge same big understeer. Exit rear more nervous difficult to drive. Also big degradation so exciting races+strategy

Worrying part is that drivers said they weren't too different from Bridgestones. THEY NEED TO BE WORSE!!

That's it for the 2010 season. Goodbye to all the 2010 cars and the first test of next season is on February 1st at the Ricardo Tormo Circuit in Valencia, Spain. All 12 teams expect to be ready for the first test, so car launches should come in January.
