The only change being made is higher tire pressures, however I think it's unnecessary. If the cars are faster due to having more downforce then it will be easier to manage thermal degradation. If the new power units take a step in power over last year, then perhaps there will be more rear tire wear on certain tracks/tire combinations.
Honestly I don't think pressures need to be touched, rather Pirelli could simply pick a harder compound in the range as a race tire. If performance between teams converge the top 3 may not have the luxury of being able to qualify on mediums.
By having what is essentially a qualifying tire, it will force teams to make a pit stop near the first quarter of the race distance, this makes the strategy later on more interesting, and requires a two stopper, or a brave one stopper.
The height of cultivation is really nothing special. It is merely simplicity; the ability to express the utmost with the minimum. Mr.Lee
