Pirelli to hold off on introduction of new tyres

NEWS STORY
29/05/2013

Pirelli has announced that while it will introduce a new range of tyres in Montreal next week they will be for testing purposes only.

According to the Italian manufacturer, which in the wake of the Spanish Grand Prix announced it would be changing the construction of its tyres in time for Canada, in order to provide testing time before the new range is introduced, the medium and supersoft tyres for Canada will be in exactly the same specification as that which the teams started the season, with no adjustments.

This new tyre will be brought to Canada as an experimental tyre for free practice, as allowed by the current regulations. Each driver will receive two sets of this new medium compound for use during Friday’s two sessions only.

Following feedback from the teams and drivers, the new specification of tyre is then set to be introduced from the British Grand Prix at the end of June, and will remain in place until the end of the year.

The aim of introducing the new tyre is to prevent any instances of the tread detaching itself from the structure. However, the performance and wear characteristics of the new tyre will not be significantly different, with the aim of keeping up the spectacle and retaining a strategic element to all the races.
