F1 figures frustrated with Bridgestone's 2010 tyre

Formula one drivers remain unimpressed with the design of Bridgestone's 2010 tyre.

Up and down pitlane, 'getting these tyres to work' is the enigmatic and universal question, which for some teams and drivers is more of a problem than elsewhere.

Ferrari's Felipe Massa, for example, needs warm weather, a soft tyre compound and an abrasive track surface to be as quick as his teammate Fernando Alonso.

"It has little to do with racing when you are so dependent on the tyres," the Brazilian is quoted by Germany's Auto Motor und Sport.
