Økonomikørsel and handling of the delicate Pirelli tyres was taken to extremes in the past Formula 1 season.
Ask just Kevin Magnussen, who in the UNITED states was disqualified for using too much gasoline. Like all strategists in the paddock as most often chose to ask the drivers to save tyres instead of taking an extra pit-stop, because in the end it was faster.
For the coming season meetings Pirelli up with fewer tyres, which is supposed to work better. And so have the riders over five kilos of fuel more.
Which Kevin Magnussen is looking forward to.
- The most frustrating part in the Formula 1 is to save too much petrol. A little is fine; man has always had to save a bit of petrol in Formula 1. But how we did it a few times last year, was for me a joke, said the Danish Haas runs at the presentation of the Haas team's new colors.
- the Tyres are a different thing. As in Mexico, where we drove eight sekundere slower than what we could with a new tire. It is also frustrating.
In the heated minutes of the contest sent the bank all the yourselves according to Pirelli; from lortedæk a disgrace for Formula 1.
The new frontvinge is broader, simpler and generate less downforce. This means that the wind resistance is larger, and thus may eat some of the prize by having 110 kg of fuel instead of 105 kg. Photo: John Sibley/Ritzau Scanpix

I just hope that we don't get the extreme scenarios where we can't run races anymore. It is fine enough to have to deal with it a little, but to do it in the extreme and ridiculous manner, as some times in the last year - whether it's tires or fuel - it is a little crazy.
I hope that the situation has changed, says the dane.
the Concern is, however, that the extra five kg of fuel is not going to make much difference, because they are eaten by the greater wind resistance, as the larger and simpler frontvinger causes.
