Three teams for wet test at Paul Ricard

NEWS STORY
11/01/2016

Pirelli has announced that three teams will take part in a two-day wet test at Paul Ricard later this month.

Whilst in previous years whole tests have been compromised by the weather, in recent years Pirelli has gone into the season with little testing of its wet rubber, never more so than 2014 when the two final tests were held in Bahrain.

Consequently, the Italian manufacturer has organised a two-day wet test at Paul Ricard for January 25 and 26.

According to Pirelli, the two-day test will focus just on wet tyres (no intermediates). Different wet prototypes will be tested.

Three teams will take part in the test: Ferrari, Red Bull and McLaren, though, as per the regulations, all will be using their 2015 cars with no modifications allowed.

Details of the drivers participating as well the programme will be made available in the coming days.

"Would it have been a bit fairer to test with some of the lower to middle order teams - say Williams, Force India & Sauber - to avoid giving an advantage to those at the front, or lots of money to spend? Or is it money that has got those teams to this test?"

"Does Red Bull have any of last years engines left?

Someone check the track for strong gusts of wind "

"Are they seriously going to use a 2015 McLaren for testing!!!

Is that to practise recovering cars from the circuit in the wet?"
