Pirelli presents the new 2012 F1 tyres Yas Marina circuit in Abu Dhabi 25 January; Pirelli will introduce the new alloys, new forms and new logos.
Pirelli has promise for this year softer compound, which may be faster than operating temperature, and at the same moment narrow the difference in speed between the two race mixture. Pirelli HAS Promised for this year Softer compound, Which May Be Faster Than Operating temperature, and is at the same time narrow the difference in speed Between the two races mixture.
Paul Hembery, Pirelli’s motorsport boss, revealed at AUTOSPORT International that work continues on finalising the compounds for 2012 and he remains satisfied with the direction of the development.
“The hard, medium and soft compounds are changing,” he said. “We are making the performance differences between them much closer together and faster as well.
“We’ve changed the profile on the rear tyre and done a bit of work on the construction to try and get a little bit more footprint because we assume, maybe incorrectly, that there will be a little less down-force in 2012 – at least at the start of the season.
“But with the knowledge we now have, because not every circuit was known to us before F1, then we can make more aggressive compound selections for each race. Martin Whitmarsh gave a comment in Brazil when he said he wants Pirelli to challenge us again and push the barriers so that’s what we will be trying to do.”
