Gutierrez concludes Pirelli test at Fiorano

NEWS STORY
02/08/2016

Pirelli has completed its first two-day test session evaluating 2017 specification wet weather tyres at Fiorano.

Sebastian Vettel drove yesterday and today it was the turn of Esteban Gutierrez to get behind the wheel of the modified SF15-T.

The Haas driver completed 165 laps in a programme which was essentially a replay of yesterday’s with a handful of installation laps on dry tyres, before switching to intermediates and wets on the artificially watered track.

Tomorrow, Red Bull begins a similar two-day test at Mugello.

"What on earth do Pirelli think they are doing, do we really want to see aircraft tyres on F1 cars surely the answer is bigger wheels and lower profile tyres, I hope I never see tyres like this on my road car. I thought the objective was to make the tyres resemble in side profile road tyres but obviously much wider. "
