USGP, F1 did the right thing
They were dead on. Michelin should have tested the bloody tries. That they suggested that the track be modified to better suit the over teams is ridiculous and Ferrari, rightly, didn't agree. They could have raced in a manner that was safe with the tires and competed for 3/4/5/6/7/8 place but instead chose to sit it out and give the points to Minardi and Jordan although Trulli and Kimi got points because they were first to retire.
So, it may not be understood in the USA but I agree with Ferrari as it's not like the other teams have allowed track modifications or rule changes to suit the infamous Bridgestones warming up problems. What comes around, goes around...
