Besides, Pirelli was given the job of creating tires that would spice up the racing. They've certainly done that. And isn't adapting to change a big part of what F1 is about?
Your 2 paragraphs contradict each other.

Yes Pirelli has four tyre types as you state. But some of the compounds have changed. Pirelli has said at several races that they are bringing new compounds to try out.

And last I don't agree that Pirelli's goal should be to spicy up the race as I said in my previous post. And further if you agree that Pirelli should spicy up the race then you must agree that it is exactly what they are doing.
