Christian Horner has praised Red Bull's handling of the Pirelli issue, saying at least his team had "the balls" to speak out in public.
Red Bull Racing was one of the more vocal when it came to criticising the Pirelli tyres in the opening stint of this year's Championship.
Unhappy with the high degradation of the tyres, Horner and his team even voiced their discontent in the wake of Sebastian Vettel's dominant victory in the Canadian Grand Prix.
Eventually Pirelli agreed to change their tyres but only after the British Grand Prix was marred with several failures.
"We were just being honest; we weren't hiding behind the issue and being politically correct," Horner told Autosport.
"We were just being honest about the situation, that we thought it was too marginal.
"We were saying what a lot of people were telling us in private but perhaps didn't have the balls to say in public.
"I think our position has been totally persistent and thankfully something has been done. Whether that disadvantages or helps us, I have got no idea.
"I don't think in reality it changes anything. I just think it is better for Formula 1."
The team boss also reiterated his belief that the tyres were playing to great a role in the Championship as their characteristics meant teams with fast cars couldn't push to their limits.
"I think what we could see early on is that we have got a quick car, but the tyres were becoming a very dominant factor," he said.
"Our comments about the tyres were consistent all the way from Melbourne to Silverstone.
"Nothing changed even though we've managed to win three races up to that point, we felt that they were too marginal and that it wasn't right for the drivers to having to drive so far within themselves and there were issues with the tyres sustaining damage.
"I think with the changes that have been made recently, really since Montreal, we have seen the drivers being able to push much harder in the races and really test each other."
