Pirelli We congratulate Ferrari

The head of Pirelli Mario Isola congratulated the Scuderia to victory in Monaco, the first since 2001.Mario Isola "Though it was always clear that the strategy with one stop would be optimal, today we saw a wide range of options and possibilities. Pilots choose when to pit stop, which led to unexpected results.As expected, the tire wear was low. Long stretches even at the Ul on the hot asphalt does not become a hindrance to teams.Congratulations to Ferrari since winning the double at the historic track".

Pirelli It was unpredictable qualification

The head of Pirelli Mario Isola commented on the results of the qualification in Monaco.Mario Isola "It was a really unpredictable qualifying session, where we learned additional information about tires. Ul were used from the beginning to the end in qualifying that was initially the most likely scenario, especially since the pilots were able to make several qualifying laps on one set without any loss of speed.One pit stop is, of course, the optimal strategy of the race. Perhaps someone wants to start the race on the Supersoft, then to use the safety car to move at a faster rubber, which will remain until the end of the race".

Mario Isola The softest compounds - the obvious choice for Monaco

The head of Pirelli Mario Isola commented on the selection of teams for the upcoming Monaco Grand Prix.Mario Isola "Three of the most soft composition - the obvious choice for Monaco, but they still give a lot of opportunities for strategic change, because wear and degradation are extremely low. This will allow teams to choose when and what part of them to make his only pit stop. This is the first Grand Prix, where pilots could choose their own tires, and, as expected, the vast majority chose Ul. These tires will be used in the qualification and in the race".

The list of available rubber before the race start

Tyres Pirelli has published a list available for the race rubber. It is expected that the team will use the bus Soft and Medium. One fresh type of Medium is all the drivers, but fresh Soft tyres were not many.

Pirelli expect two pit stop

In Spain you can use the tires Soft, Medium and Hard. According to the engineers Pirelli, teams will choose two of the most soft type, and will race with two pit stops.Mario Isola, Pirelli "the Results in qualifying turned out very dense, the gaps between the machines are minimal.In the race we are waiting for the tactics with two pit stops. The difference between rubber Soft and Medium is large, so the teams will try to pass on the softer tyres to the greater distance. We expect all decide to drive two segments on the Soft and one on Medium.

Mario Isola the Wind prevented normal operation

The head of Pirelli Mario Isola pointed out the problems of the teams in preparation for the Grand Prix of Spain.Mario Isola "Quite strong and changeable winds created difficulties for the teams to work with our tires. It was especially difficult to work in the afternoon. Not helped the teams to gather more information and red flags in the end of the session.However, we saw that the gap between the tire Hard and Medium is about 1.8 seconds. We expect that the gap between the speed of these tyres during the race will be more than 1.5 seconds. We think that teams will choose these compounds for the next race. The level of degradation of the compounds is about the same. Understanding of the tyres will be key to strategy".

Pirelli Degradation may be higher than during the tests

The head of Pirelli Mario Isola believes that the degradation of rubber during the race Grand Prix of Spain may be higher than during the winter tests.Mario Isola "It's the last race, where a fixed selection of types of rubber. Since Monaco, the pilots will be able to pick and choose the amount of each of the compositions of the tyres.Barcelona - a famous meeting place of the aerodynamic evolution of the car, a new package of upgrades and tires. We understand that with the increased performance of the cars the tires are obviously going to experience a higher level of degradation compared to the winter tests. In addition, it can be expected that the weather is now much warmer than in February,".

Niki Lauda Mercedes is another big problem

Non-Executive Director of Mercedes Niki Lauda admitted that his team has another issue and not only a controversial issue in the rubber.Niki Lauda "they Say that the biggest problem Mercedes are tires, but that's not the only problem.We have too much weight, we need to improve aerodynamics and, above all, we need to understand why the new Pirelli tires do not work as they work for Ferrari. I'm glad that Bottas can win, but one class of pilots we will not go far".

Pirelli I Wonder what lessons the team learned after the tests

The head of Pirelli Mario Isola said his company will closely watch how Russia will handle commands after two days of tests in Bahrain.Mario Isola "the Race in Russia will take place after two days of tests in Bahrain, so interested to see what lessons the team learned from this experience as they work with the tyres in Sochi.At first glance, Sochi is the track with the low intensity of destruction of rubber, and more durable tyres this year should lead to the fact that the race will take place with one pit stop. However, the first time we are going there with tires Ul, so it is unknown how wide the new tires will manifest itself. We also believe that the difference in speed between the soft compounds will be negligible".

2017-04-20 09:44:03

Pirelli Tests passed

The head of Pirelli Mario Isola was pleased with how the tested new compounds of tires during the tests in Bahrain. Tests conducted by Sebastian Vettel.Mario Isola "Our company is satisfied with the tests in Bahrain. We, along with Ferrari have fulfilled the planned program. Let with the machine was not all right in the morning, we still met all the points. And all thanks to the mercy of the managers of the track, which allowed us to work an extra three hours.Vettel was able to pass 130 laps, checking different options of rubber compounds for next year. We are satisfied with the cooperation with the Sakhir circuit, since local weather conditions are ideal for our work. We collected a lot of useful information that will be analyzed on the basis of in Milan".

Pirelli a Fantastic beginning of a new era

The head of Pirelli Mario Isola believes that the products his company worked fine in combat conditions of the race Grand Prix of Australia.Mario Isola "the New era of Formula 1 began with a fantastic race in Australia. The pilots were able to fight tightly throughout each of the segments. As we expected, the teams chose different strategies for its pilots, so it was possible to observe a variety of schemes. Even the leaders have been working on different schemes.Rubber worked with a low level of degradation, so we saw the pilots put the quick laps at the end of the race on tyres that were more than 30 laps.

In many cornering load increased to 5G. And it was only a test The pilots were able to fly in the third turn of the gas to the floor with a speed of 280 kilometers per hour And what will happen during a real Grand Prix at the higher temperatures the trackSome doctors noted that Formula 1 came to a dark border. I don't know what it is, it may limit the development of the racing technology, but even this limit should have a more robust bus".

In Pirelli ready for tests rain rubber

Today in Barcelona will be tests rain rubber. Sports Director of Pirelli Mario Isola told why this is necessary.Mario Isola "the Night we fill the track with water then pour it in the morning. There is no system of artificial irrigation, so we have prepared eight water tanks.We decided to check the tires in all conditions, from flooded tracks in the morning before drying of the coating in the afternoon. The tests will be useful to the teams, they will be able to find the right time to transition from one type of rubber to another.Bus 2017 are quite different. Their effectiveness on the withdrawal of water has greatly improved. Grooves to divert water have become more obviously and spray now will be more, but that's another problem".

Many criticize that braking will occur later, but this will increase the value of the skill of the pilot. Overtaking will now not idle and spectacular. Now it is very difficult to say for sure what will happen. The computer gives a different version.A lot will depend on tires. If they are good, then you can attack the enemy will be close. I can say that already on the tests, it became clear that Pirelli have tried with rubber".

We started with their simulations, working on the tires, wanting the machine has reached a high level of performance.If, for any reason, we will not achieve a high level of performance, will receive less energy going into the tire, we must go back to the tires with a more classical philosophy. We have a number of spare trains homologirana FIA. If anything, we use them for replacement. We do not intend to use them".

Then you are lobbying their concept, which may be otherwise interpreted. That's why now Ferrari is trying to push my opinion on suspension, strongly hesitating in front of FIA.We are in the middle of this dispute. And actually, most teams have contacted us on this issue. Ferrari has its own interpretation of what can be done, and they are trying to promote an opinion that does not suit the rest of the team, which most".
