Bridgestone: No Canadian repeat in European GP

Published

on

Regrettably for Formula 1 fans, Bridgestone tyres are not anticipating tyre degradation in Valencia, which means there won’t be a repeat of the Canadian GP thrill. With Bridgestone’s softer tyres degrading around the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, Formula 1 fans were given a treat as driver’s chosen for different strategies in qualifying and were also forced to pit more than once.
But, the Japanese manufacturer says their tyres will hold up improved in Valencia, due to the nature of the track and the milder temperatures. Bridgestone’s director of motorsport tyre development Hirohide Hamashima said: The layout and track surface is more aggressive to the tyres than in Montreal so we do not expect the same challenge for teams to get maximum performance from the medium and super soft compounds as in Canada.
“This year’s European Grand Prix takes place in June, as opposed to the late August date of the first two grands prix in Valencia but we don’t believe the date change will present us with radically different climate.”
