Pirelli want to change 2013 rules

Published

on

Sept.08 – The Italian tyre maker Pirelli propose a new method for 2013 F1, Teams select own tyre compounds ahead of each grand prix. New F1 tyre supplier Pirelli now takes two set of compounds to each grand prix, But Pirelli said the uniqueness of some cars go well with certain tyres more than others..

Discussion at the FOTA fans forum in Milan, Pirelli’s Motorsport director Paul Hembery said his company has lots of ideas for 2013 F1 season

“We have put forward some proposals, such as qualifying tyres and better usage of the tyre allocation than we have now,” he said. “These conversations are geared towards 2013 and we may let the teams choose compounds, which is something we’ve done in the past in the World Rally Championship. But these are just discussion points, but to tell you the truth we are very happy with what we have done so far so we shouldn’t exaggerate the problems. So far, so good.”

Paul Hembery made clear that the strategies for 2013 are still in their infancy.

“In terms of logistics, we’d need to know in advance what tyres to take,” he said. “We have many races outside Europe, to which shipments need to be made a couple of months beforehand. We’re already talking about doing this, but it will take some time to finalize. We’re talking about logistics with the team principals and we’re talking about it on a technical level too because we can’t be too extreme with our technical decisions. We received a memo from the drivers only yesterday, asking us to review the tyre allocation because at the end of each race the drivers still have a set of unused tyres – usually the harder of the two compounds,” Hembery added. “The drivers want us to find a way to use them, either in the qualifying session or over the weekend at some point. That’s something we want to sort out for 2012.

Paul Hembery revealed that Pirelli is working on faster compounds for 2012.

“I don’t expect major surprises next year,” Hembery said. “We’re researching new compounds that could improve lap times by as much as 1.2s per lap, but that’s too much. We’re looking for a maximum improvement of 0.6s to 0.8s per lap and to meet that we’ve designed a new rear tyre. There’s also going to be a new rain tyre, so the changes for next year aren’t really going to be visible from the outside. We’re also thinking about changing the colour of the tyres to increase visibility.”
