Pirelli tyre statement due before Valencia

Published

on

MILAN – It is still signing the contract, but Milan are the bottles of champagne already chilled. According to sources within the Pirelli collected exclusively by 422race.com fact, the Italian tire is certain to be the new tire supplier for Formula 1 from 2011.

The negotiations were long and exhausting. Even in Turkey an official announcement was expected, but apparently the opposition of three teams, had reached a stalemate, so that some important leaders of the Michelin had organized a blitz to Istanbul to try to bring to the benefit of the Bibendum stables.

But the backlash of the French did not go into port and so the FOTA and the FOM Bernie Ecclestone has given its clearance to replace the name of Pirelli Bridgestone. Now, as we learn from the supplier Milan, the ball fell into the hands of the FIA, whose legal department is establishing the final details. And, red tape permitting, the announcement should come before the next European Grand Prix in Valencia provided.

Time amply sufficient, in short, because the Pirelli organize its supply by 2011. Already a bit ‘late, however, for teams that have now begun to develop their own car for next year based on data of the current tires. Also for this reason, then, the Italian house is back behind its intentions initials in 2011, the 13-inch tires will be carried out like today, but in future it will be possible to increase the diameter of the circles as desired.

Pirelli, therefore, will be back in Formula which is absent now from the distant 1991 and is also supplying the GP2. Taking into account the fact that already this year the GP3 mans cars, tires nostrani will therefore be those used by the entire chain of categories in preparation for the pinnacle of open wheel.
