Is image everything to Pirelli?

Pirelli & Cie SpA spends a lot of money promoting its brand -- and image. Whether its the Pirelli Calendar or the company's involvement in Formula One racing, the company knows how to make a splash.

Is Pirelli getting enough bang for its buck, however? Seven races into the Formula One season, and 20 years since Pirelli last supplied tires to F1 teams, Modern Tire Dealer Editor Bob Ulrich tries to find out.

Do you agree with Ulrich? Is supplying tires to Formula One a good move for the Italian company?
