Formula One World Championship 2013, Round 2, Malaysian Grand PrixFinally, the FIA confirmed that Pirelli will continue with F1 beyond 2013, but still need the confirmation of World Motor Sport Council (WMSC).

Following some tyre tragedy during 2013 F1 season, particularly vital tyre drama happened in British Grand Prix, four blowouts occurred during the race. Currently F1 tyre supplier Pirelli guaranteed that they will contribute 2014 F1 campaign with very conservative strategy.

Pirelli has also been picking combination of compounds more traditional than other years for the last races of the championship, but recent season’s story still continuing “Sebastian Vettel smoothly riding to his fourth consecutive drivers’ championship”.

“We will conduct a very conservative strategy. Simulation will choose the worst case as the basis for the development of the tire structure,” Pirelli Motorsports director Paul Hembery told Auto Motor und Sport.

Pirelli has now working for 2014 tires. Actuality they are attempting to try a representative car, the current Mercedes W04 , ended illegal three-day tyre testing. The Italian tyre manufacturer will have to complete 1,000 miles on car two years ago, as did recently in Barcelona with a Red Bull.

“As far as we can tell, was good. The car is three seconds faster than our test Lotus. But all expect a journey into the unknown with the new cars of 2014,” said Hembery.

“[The situation of tire development] paranoia exists for equipment. What we need to do our job, unfortunately, does not fit what the teams want. And nobody is finding any solution,”.
