Feb.19 (GMM/Inautonews.com) Christian Horner has played down hopes F1’s new tyre rules will really spice up the action.

From 2016, a set of complex rules essentially allowing teams to choose from three tyre compounds per race is tipped to shake up the established order.

“It’s a nice way to give us (teams) a few more options,” Red Bull team boss Christian Horner said in an interview with France’s L’Equipe.

“It may inject a little more variability into the races, but I fear that with the very powerful simulation we can do these days that most of the teams will be making the same choices,” he added.
