Pirelli Tyres in F1

I listen with amusement to the gleeful pronouncements made by the F1 presenters, that the new Pirelli tyres have revitalised the sport. All this while watching the world’s best drivers and race engineers struggle to make the things work.
My opinion was that the tyres are rubbish, but that was based on a technical perspective, so I took it upon myself to find out what I could about these mysterious black doughnuts.

Way back in the mists of history, the blue blazer brigade at the FIA determined that Formula 1 cars would run on 13” diameter wheels. I seem to recall that the logic was to force a reduction in the size of brake discs that could be used and therefore ensure the cars would have nice, long braking distances, so there could be lots of overtaking. Yeah, sure!
