Ughh really? I like having a single manufacturer. Less excuses for the teams and the drivers. I much prefer the status quo over what we had a few years ago- Bridgestone was basically making Schumacher bespoke tires for each race weekend and if they worked, nobody had a chance.

If we did have multiple manufacturers, I'd like it if there were no fixed team/manufacturer contracts- meaning any team could use any manufacturers tire at any race. That way tire manufacturers would be battling against each other to make the best possible tire and teams would obviously choose the best tire for a given race.

If 18" wheels = bigger brakes and better technology transfer to road cars- I'm all for it.
