F1 and Pirelli... All the numbers

NEWS STORY
03/12/2013

"Each year, we publish the numbers that tell the story of our Formula One season," says Pirelli motorsport director, Paul Hembery. "This year, we wanted to talk about all the numbers from the three-year period between 2011 and 2013, as one era closes and another one opens. Personally speaking, even I have been astonished by the statistics our engineers have calculated relating to our initial Formula contract: more than 110,000 tyres supplied, 3000 pit stops, and an average of 56 overtaking manoeuvres per race. These three years have also been characterised by unstinting dedication from all our people, both on the track and in our Research and Development facilities, in order to meet the needs of teams and drivers through state-of-the-art technical solutions - as all the key players themselves have acknowledged.

"Throughout the three-year period, the tyre specification has completely changed year on year, as well as being evolved throughout the season: an effort that has never been seen before under a single tyre supplier regime in Formula One. We were presented with a challenging task and we met it: as the teams, drivers and championship organisers have pointed out on several occasions. And it's in that same spirit that we are now working towards 2014."
