Pirelli will test two extra sets soft tyres in Friday Practice at Abu Dhabi

Pirelli will test two extra sets soft tyres in Friday Practice at Abu Dhabi for 2012 preparation. Pirelli will also hand a limited number of 2012-spec tyre to teams for the Young Driver Test next week at Abu Dhabi.

“At this point in the season, our emphasis is obviously on refining our tyre choices for next year, which is why we are seeing some new tyres during free practice here and the young driver test,” Pirelli director of Motorsport Paul Hembery said.

“With very limited opportunities for testing during the season, this is important for us to collect information as we develop our strategy for 2012, which will feature tyres that are a bit different from this year’s range. We’re very familiar with the Yas Marina circuit as a testing venue so we’re confident that the tyre choice we have made for the race should suit the characteristics of the track.

“Abu Dhabi is an absolutely fantastic facility with some good overtaking opportunities, so we’re very pleased to be celebrating our first anniversary there.”
