If Mercedes is not getting on top of their tyre problems, like -from the top of my head-
in 2013.. than they can have the fasted PU they want.. they will only chew up their tyres.
Ferrari has shown a few inklings already this season, of a power unit that might not be 100% bullet proof.
If I had to choose between a reliable car that can grab poles but has higher tire wear that its closest competition, and a car that is good on tires, but has slower single lap pace,and questionable reliability, I'd choose the faster car.
I'd rather loose 7 points because I ate my tires and finished second, than potential loosing 25 and then having to deal with penalties later in the season because a PU/component blows.
