Ferrari: Pirelli will offer some shock and surprise in Australia

Published

on

Ferrari technical director Pat Fry says that Pirelli will offer some shock and surprise in opening race at Australia and also he claims that it will be the same for everyone.

The Italian tyre manufacturer Pirelli has introduced this season tyres to degrade more rapidly for keeping racing attractive and more pit stops.

Still most team’s struggled with Pirelli behaviour throughout pre-season testing. Pat Fry says new Pirelli compound difficult to understand, and also he expecting opening Australian Grand Prix will be unpredictable.

“I think the race pace is going to be down to how you use the tyres,” Fry said. “I think there’s still going to be a lot of people learning things in Melbourne to be honest.

“The tyres here have been graining massively so what we learn here won’t necessarily carry over to Melbourne. There will be a few surprised people and a few shocked people, but it will be the same for everyone.”

“I think it’s going to be fairly mixed up to be honest,” he added. “I wouldn’t like to predict where we are going to be. It’ll be interesting to run on a very hot track, so if Melbourne is 33C like it was a few days ago it will certainly be a different story to here [in Barcelona]. We’ll see and we are all going to learn as we go.”

“Here it is a little bit dominated by the graining and in the morning it’s quite bad – you can’t run the hard tyre in the morning because it’s got no grip and by the time you’ve warmed it up it has grained. It will be interesting at a cold Spa to see what happens as well.”
