DEALS ON WHEELS: In N.Y., Brad Spurgeon noted F1 tire supplier Pirelli has “the luxury of creating tires with no competition, but it has the new problem of trying to please the teams, drivers and spectators.” Red Bull team principal Christian Horner said, “The problem is that they have 12 teams asking for 12 different things, and you will never have a product that satisfies everyone’s request.” Toro Rosso Technical Dir Giorgio Ascanelli said that the tire question had “indeed returned an importance to the job of the driver in an age when so much is controlled or analyzed by computers” (N.Y. TIMES, 5/27).
