F1 2013 – Pirelli: new tyre has a “wider working temperature window”

Formula One News » F1 2013 – Pirelli: new tyre has a “wider working temperature window”

Pirelli boss Paul Hembery says the new Pirelli tyres will be a lot closer to the 2012 tyres and have a “wider working temperature window”. The new tyres are set to debut at the 2013 Spanish Grand Prix.

“We’re introducing a revised version of our hard tyre in Spain, which is closer in characteristics to the 2012 tyre,”

“This new tyre gives us a wider working temperature window – although it delivers a little bit less in terms of pure performance – but it should allow the teams to envisage an even wider variety of race strategies than before in combination with the other compounds, which remain unchanged this year.

“This is a decision that we’ve come to having looked at the data from the first four races, with the aim of further improving the spectacle of Formula One.

“In fact this is almost a tradition with us now, as we also introduced a revised version of the hard tyre for the Spanish Grand Prix in 2011, which was our first year in the sport.

“We’d expect the medium tyre to still be significantly faster and this is the one that the teams are likely to qualify on, whereas the hard is likely to be the preferred race tyre.”
