Rosberg says great challenging season with 2012 Pirelli tyres

Published

Nico Rosberg says 2012 season challenge of Pirelli tyres is great for F1, and he does not support with his Mercedes team-mate Michael Schumacher’s recent declaration about 2012 Pirelli.

“It’s just a very different game,” Rosberg told Autosport. “We have seen already this year that when you go from one condition to another, one racetrack to another, one temperature to another… different cars are better on the tyres, so there’s a very big engineering challenge to understand why, to adapt and to try and be the one to understand the tyres best. That can be a very big key for the season, so we’re pushing hard to try and understand that quicker than others.

“Personally, I think it’s great for the season. We’ve had four winners in four races, all mixed up. It couldn’t be better for Formula One. Also within the races, with the tyre degradation and with lots of overtaking, we’ve had lots of exciting races.”

“We are at the start of the season,” Hembery told the James Allen on F1 website. “At the start of last year there was a lot of discussion and you will find that two or three races from now we won’t be having this discussion. Because the engineers will work out how to maximise the performance on the car they will find a balance and a relative level of normality will occur.”

“You have to bear in mind what we were asked to do. We were asked to create these challenges. If the sport wants us to go to a one change, zero degradation tyre we can do that as well. But maybe people have short memories, the sport was in huge decline no-one was watching it. There was no overtaking. We know that the majority of fans like to see overtaking.”
