F1 2013 – Pirelli predict 2 stop race for Monaco Grand Prix

Formula One News » F1 2013 – Pirelli predict 2 stop race for Monaco Grand Prix

Pirelli say they are expecting the 2013 F1 Monaco Grand Prix to consist of 2 pit stops per car.

‘Monaco is the slowest and most twisty circuit on the calendar, where it is hard to overtake, so this makes rapid warm-up and high levels of mechanical grip from the tyres essential. Nonetheless, wear and degradation is also the lowest of the year: meaning that a maximum of two pit stops per car should be the norm,’ report Pirelli.

‘The Monte Carlo Grand Prix track has a record number of ‘leasts’ – as well as being the slowest track of the year, the surface is also the least abrasive of the whole season.’

All that though could change, as Monaco has an 80% chance of a safety car being deployed.
