Like it with the exception of the hard and medium, Grey and white may look much alike.
We'll see.

Yah, green would have been a better choice.

If there's a step between the compounds at each race then it won't be a problem.

Yep - AS LH says, we should only see Red & White or Yellow & Silver at dry races.

I think it's a bit over-the-top to be honest.

What's important is whether a driver is on the softer or the harder tyre. Not the specific compound they are on. If a hardcore race fan really cares about these details, they'll be looking it up before the race anyway.

For the casual fan, they might tune in and forget which colour means harder and which means softer. A simple stripe like bridgestone did made it straight forward and clear.

I guess it's easier for Pirelli if they don't have to keep changing the colours on tyres between races.

As the article says, the gap between compounds is open to revision. In this case you won't be able to tell the difference between the white and silver tyres, and people will easily forget which compounds the red and yellow tyres are.

Incredibly Ferrari has announced that under their strict corporate branding guidelines, they will only be using the Supersoft and Medium tyres this season!

I like the use of different colours for tyres. Will take some of the guesswork out of qualifying form etc.
