Not-so-young F1 drivers test new Pirelli tires
ERJ staff report (BC)
Silverstone, UK – Formula One racing teams have tested the range of Pirelli tyres that will be used from the Hungarian Grand Prix (28 July) onwards, over three days at the Silverstone circuit.
The exercise was officially designated a “young driver” test, but the regular race drivers were also allowed to take part, provided they followed Pirelli’s tire running plan.
Pirelli motorsport director Paul Hembery said: “We think that everybody achieved their objectives from these three days of running at Silverstone. … The established performance of the 2012 [tire] structure, consolidated with the speed of the current compounds, is set to provide an interesting mix of strategies for the races ahead.”
