Pirelli: Significant increase in pace of F1 2015 cars

The promise comes from official tyre supplier Pirelli’s F1 chief, Paul Hembery, who is expecting a significant increase in pace of Formula 1 cars this year.

Last season, the Italian brand took a deliberately conservative approach to its 2014 rubber, having gone through a tumultuous 2013 and with the uncertainties of the new turbo V6 era in mind.

As a result, and with the high-downforce, V8 powered era in the past, lap times last year generally suffered.

“Last season, the power unit manufacturers, the teams, and ourselves (Pirelli) learned a lot” said Hembery.

Quoted by Russian f1news.ru, he added: “It will be very interesting to see what awaits us in Australia. Only then will we get a real idea of the scale of changes that have occurred.

“At Pirelli we already have specific information about what we can expect in the new season, and I can say that some of it is very interesting, and that is to put it mildly.

“We expect a significant increase in pace, and when you consider how much laptimes normally improve through a season, I think by the end of 2015 we will be getting close to breaking records,” Hembery added. (GMM/ThisisF1)
