Pirelli hope that Formula 1 teams will accept new tyre
Published: Tuesday 4th of June 2013 | Author: Naidre | Category: Industry News
Pirelli is confident that Formula 1 teams will accept the introduction of its modified 2013 tyres for the British Grand Prix. The new rear tyres will feature the same compounds, but with the construction changed by the replacement of the existing steel belt with a kevlar one, as used last year.
The new tyres are designed to tackle the problems experienced in the Bahrain and Spanish GP weekends. Teams will each be given two sets of the new rubber for evaluation during Friday practice for this weekend's Canadian Grand Prix.
"That [the practice running] allows the teams to understand if there are any changes to setup and balance," said Pirelli motorsport boss Paul Hembery. "We will then take the tyres to Silverstone."
"The indications we have from the teams is that they accept that we need to make a change and that they are favourable," said Hembery.
"Clearly, some would like a bigger change, some would like no change, but they do understand we do need to resolve the delamination issue and we believe we have a solution that minimises the change to the performance of the current tyre.
"At the moment, it looks like there is unanimous agreement."
