Pirelli planning qualifying tyres for 2012 F1



Aug.11 – The Italian tyre maker Pirelli planning qualifying tyre pick to 2012 F1. Pirelli wants to get teams feedback, if they don’t want to do it, we won’t do it. The low grip qualifying compound vanished from grand prix racing following the 1991 season, when both Pirelli and Goodyear supplied the field with very grippy rubber that performed at its peak during a single flying lap.

Pirelli Motorsport director Paul Hembery told Autosport that the Italian tyre maker has presented the teams to bring the tyres back next year and was waiting for their thoughts about the idea.

“We’ve put the idea of qualifying tyres to the teams and we will get their feedback,” said Hembery. “If they don’t want to do it, we won’t do it. It might be a step too far next year and too much for the teams to take on board, but it’s something that we have offered.”
