Sergio Perez: tyre degradation is a concern

Formula One News » Sergio Perez: tyre degradation is a concern

Sergio Perez, who topped the time sheets on day 2 at Barcelona pre-season testing says tyre degradation is a concern and is surprised by how “weak” the tyre rubber actually is.

“It’s extreme. The degradation is very difficult. It’s a big surprise normally in winter testing we see a lot of degradation, but never this much.”

“We are going to have a race here so it’s a bit of a worry. But we are still learning about the tyres and I think once we go racing I hope things will change.”

“I hope it changes, because if we are in this situation in Melbourne we are going to see something like seven or 10 stops.”

“The summary is positive. Today has been a very important day for us. We managed a lot of mileage and we completed the programme, so I’m very happy in that respect. The conclusion is we have a lot of work to do before Melbourne.”

“It’s the same approach that we had when we started testing. We have to maximise every chance to make this car better before we get to Melbourne.”
