Some (Lotus/Renault) figured out how to achieve a competitive balance between the car/tires and speed. Others (Red Bull) seem to have gone after speed with no thought to the limiting influence of tires.
Complaints about rubber is nothing new. Slicks to grooved, remember those days? And reference Spain and passing, there were some great passes on the track, great race!
