Pirelli: Two second gap per lap between the option and prime tyres

“From what we can see so far, we were satisfied with both the performance and degradation of the Medium and Soft compounds, both of which are completely new this year,” Hembery said.

“The degradation on the medium tyre is very low, with degradation on the soft slightly higher. We’ve seen no blistering or graining at all today and also fewer marbles, so up to now we have met our objectives.

“The new tyre regulations seem to have worked well so far, with the fans able to see more of the cars out on track, which was exactly the intention.”
