Pirelli: Teams learned much better how to deal 2013 tyre

Published

Formula 1 official tyre supplier Pirelli has expecting more aggressive challenge in 2013 season. Pirelli had granted the teams with the 2013 sample to test through the Friday free practice session during the season final race at Brazil.

The Italian tyre maker now prepares to introduce new softer compounds for 2013 F1, and also Pirelli targets to be a bit more aggressive with their compound collection for the new season so that they can set up more pitstops and new racing strategies for the teams.

Pirelli’s chief technical officer Maurizio Boicchi believes that 2013 teams will use new compound without any hard preparation, as he claim that in 2012 teams learned much better how to use our tyres.

“During 2012, more or less all the teams learned much better how to use our tyres, one of the key criteria that improved their consistency was the fact that we have seen and measured much less [wheel] spinning from them – which means they have learned how to manage this phenomenon.” Boicchi told Autosport.

“It [wheel spin] is terrible, as you wear the tyres fast, heat them up and they degrade very, very rapidly. This was something more and more taken into consideration by the teams. You could see cars during free practice with infra red measurements on the tyres in order to have a point-by-point reference on the circuit for the temperature on the surface of the tyres.

“It was one of the most important pieces of information on the tyres that relates to wheel spin – and it made all the difference. We believe a lot of things have moved in this direction, and what we would like to do in 2013 is to come back to be a little bit more aggressive in our compound choice in order to introduce more pitstops and strategy for the teams.” He added.

“They got their first feedback which was important, as normally at the first tests in February we have such awful temperatures that it is more or less impossible to have clear information, It is also hard to get a clear perception from the teams then too, because often they are focused 100 per cent on car development – they worry more about the aerodynamics than the tyres.”
