Pirelli played a very important role in Canadian Grand Prix

Published

Pirelli motorsport director Paul Hembery says that tyres have traditionally played a very important role in Canadian Grand Prix.

Mostly Pirelli played this season, the Italian tyre makes a fantastic season following first race and its produced six different winners.

But Hembery cast off such hints last week, claims that tyres are not the only aspect that have contribute to six different drivers winning the opening six races of the season.

“We go from Monaco to Canada: two of the most spectacular races of the year. Not only is Montreal a fantastic place to hold a race, but it’s also a great circuit. Paul Hembery said”

“The soft and supersoft tyres should be able to demonstrate more of their natural characteristics than they were able to in Monaco, where drivers are constrained by very low average speeds and not much energy going through the tyre. This enabled them to complete very long runs even on the supersoft, which should not be the case in Montreal where the tyres have more work to do.”

“Tyres have traditionally played a very important role in this race, especially if it rains. We saw how being on the right tyre at the right time enabled Jenson Button to win the Canadian Grand Prix last year even after six visits to the pit lane. That race was far from typical though, so we’ve not yet had experience of running the supersoft in Canada under normal conditions. “

“The practice sessions will be vital for the teams to understand how exactly it works on full tanks in particular. We think we will see several different strategies at work, with teams likely to split their strategies in order to cover every possibility.”
