I get qualifying tires. You have to do a damned fast lap so you put the stickiest rubber you can on your bike, and you brake later and harder, you accelerate harder and earlier. And Life is good. But on a control tire why bother? If they are serious about limiting the number of tyres used for a weekend. And they use a control tire, then why not just say No Qualifiers to the tire manufacturer who is bringing the rubber. Yeah every one will be qualifying on the softest rubber available still but at least limit it to something that is a race worthy option. So in the world of control tires why have qualifiers?
