The Italian tire revealed the reason for the gap tires from Vettel, but if Raikkonen is still being studied.In a statement, Pirelli said "a Careful study of the left front tyre with the car Vettel has shown that initially she had a puncture. The movement in run-flat tire in the pits led to the complete destruction of the rubber.In the case of Raikkonen, on his bus a few signs pointing to the cause of the destruction. Will need a few days to explore this case".

Pirelli Hamilton has a number of interesting strategies

The head of Pirelli Mario Isola told about what the options strategies have of Lewis Hamilton.Mario Isola "Lewis Hamilton has a number of alternative strategies that may have affected its fine. Start on the Supersoft gives you the ability to go the distance in a pair of Ul or Soft depending on the race conditions. It seems that the universal strategy will be the preferred choice for tomorrow, but of course it depends on weather conditions, which remain uncertain.Also it was nice to see that the time of the pole position today was two seconds faster than last year".

Christian klien Mercedes is better versed in the tires

The ex-pilot of Formula 1 Christian Wedge believes that Mercedes was able to accelerate, thanks to better work with rubber.Christian klien "in Canada, Ferrari was the clear favorite, with a huge advantage ahead of the Mercedes, especially in the work with rubber. But since then, time passed, and now Mercedes has better tires, Pirelli, making them faster to enter the working temperature window.If we talk about the title, the world champion will be the team that will be able to develop most effectively the rest of the season".

Pirelli can prepare even more soft tyres in 2018

The participants began to complain that the tyres are too durable.In Montreal the head of Haas Gunther Steiner said "On the Supersoft we could hold three races."The pilot of Renault Nico Hulkenberg "If you look at the Supersoft tyres, after 30 laps, they will be like new".Part of the problem is high tyre pressure required Pirelli, but the Italian company is reluctant to reduce it, especially in more rigid structures.The German edition Auto Motor und Sport reports that one of the solutions is the introduction of the championship of softer rubber. The new team would get called Megasoft may appear in the season of 2018.

McLaren doesn't have problems with tires

The tire does not apply to the problems of the McLaren this year. According to experts, to chassis the McLaren is one of the best in the peloton. One reason for this phenomenon is the McLaren approach to winter work, especially in preparation for the new, wider and more bulky tyres from Pirelli.While Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull have provided test cars for the Italian tyre supplier, it turns out that McLaren also participated actively in the process of developing new formulations.Race Director McLaren Eric bulge "We were the only team who sent an observer to all 24 days of tests, we presented more data requirements that the FIA and Pirelli wanted to give us originally.Thus, from the very beginning we understood well the tires without having to provide a test car".

Sebastian Vettel discusses a contract with Ferrari

The Ferrari pilot Sebastian Vettel began negotiations on a new contract with Ferrari. Team President Sergio Marchionne wants German signed a contract with a salary increase to September's Italian Grand Prix.Sebastian Vettel "the Extension of the contract is not a problem at the moment. It may sound a bit strange, but we are fully focused on the season, and so far we did not have time to talk about the future. We are all trying to maintain the current momentum.As for Pirelli, I was just asked if I wanted to test the new samples, and I immediately said Yes.I don't know if it was an advantage because the test car was completely different. We also had problems with the heating of the rubber, but that's not a problem".

Mercedes Pirelli listens to the advice of Vettel

Head of Mercedes Toto Wolff continues to believe that Sebastian Vettel has achieved favor from Pirelli for his team.Toto Wolff "Our situation last year was different from Ferrari. We were fully involved in the battle between Nico and Lewis, so none of them were too worried about the development of tires for the future.But I believe that you will very rarely find a silver bullet in Formula 1, which gives a decisive advantage. It has more to do with the preparation of many small details.Perhaps the credibility of Sebastian Vettel from Pirelli is quite high, so his words have strongly influenced the quality and composition of the product. Perhaps in Pirelli listened carefully to the opinions of such famous pilot.But I have no proof of that. For me it's just personal speculation".

Pirelli is not involved in the conspiracy with Ferrari

There are rumors that the head of Pirelli Mario Isola involved in a conspiracy with Ferrari, as only this Italian team is able to deal with new formulations of tires.Mario Isola "I was talking with Toto Wolff on this topic several times. Talked to him about the conspiracy. Wolff suspects us, he just thinks that Ferrari learned how to use the tyres better than the Mercedes.Ferrari has developed a very balanced car, and the whole secret is that the team is able to get to work tires front and rear.This sport is the best, there is great importance hundredths of a second. Therefore, only the best will be able to fully understand the work of this rubber".

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".

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,".

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".

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".
