Strategy is set to play an important role in Suzuka – Pirelli

Published

pirelli-orange-whitePirelli’s motorsport director Paul Hembery says that Strategy is set to play an important role in Suzuka for Japanese Grand Prix.

Suzuka is one of the most legendary circuits on the Formula One World Championship, this weekend Pirelli will get the two hardest compounds for highest rates degradation circuit: the P Zero Orange hard and P Zero White medium.

Season trend expecting two or three pit-stop in the race and also weather broadcasters’ hopeful heavy rain in this weekend.

“Suzuka is one of the circuits where we experience the highest rates of wear and degradation all year: because of the relatively abrasive surface and most of all because of the high-energy loadings that are going through the tyres.” Hembery said.

“That’s why we’ve nominated the two hardest compounds in our range to take to Suzuka this year. It’s not all about the fast corners though as there are also some heavy braking areas and tighter corners. So it’s a high-demand circuit when it comes to lateral energy but relatively low-demand in terms of traction, because the layout is very flowing with one corner sequencing into another.”

“Strategy is set to play an important role once more – this was a two-stop race last year, when we nominated the soft and the hard compounds – and Suzuka is a circuit that all the drivers enjoy because of the high speeds. Japan is all about raw speed: and the tyres we have selected for this weekend should enable the drivers to showcase that in front of the amazing Japanese fans.”
