Why were pirelli just listening to Vettel (according to the article) why the bias from pirelli and giving them tyres which suited their needs and cars characteristics
First of all, the article says nowhere that Pirelly were only listening to Vettel. Wolff says it is different when Vettel gives feedback compare to Pascal, which is quite obvious, 4 time World Champion vs a Rookie, in Pirelli's view, Vettel's feedback would automatically be more credible, but still, the article did not say that Pirelli only listened to Vettel.
Why r they biased? This is tyre test should have been equal for all.
Second, Mercedes were given the opportunity, but didn't take it. Pascal obviously would have told Mercedes how those tyres handled but Vettel gave more accurate feedback to Ferrari as compared to what Pascal gave to Mercedes. If anything made the difference, that's what it is.
All teams did equal tests, but Merc and others only used test drivers. You do know that all data from all the teams were distributed to everyone.
Were u there when Vettel gave feedback to the team and compared that with Pascal? The article said how PIRELLI listened to Vettel alone....That in itself gave them advantage...why would a tyre supplier be biased to one team?
And third, how do you think Vettel gave feedback to Pirelli? Like dictated them on how to make tyres or what changes to make to them so that it can suit their car better? Or did Vettel knew how their 2017 car would be, the energy it will put into the tyres, the kind of suspension geometry it will have, or did he have a crystal ball?
If u think that in last 2016 Ferrari didn't have their 2017 car ready and run them in simulator and knew about how the suspension eneegy works etc, then there is no use in this discussion. We don't need crystal ball to see it.....Ferrari mule car was said to run different aero pressure balance levels and aero levels than actual 2017 levels (pirelli themselves said this) this false data lead to making rock hard tyre which in turn helped Ferrari more
