Formula One News » F1 2013 – Lotus: Pirelli have gone too conservative Posted on 17/06/2013
Lotus have spoken out about Pirellis tyre choices for the next 3 races saying that the choices are too conservative.
BBC sports reports “It’s unusual to take the same tyres to Hungary as to Bahrain and Silverstone,”
“We didn’t have those tyres last year. We had medium and soft last year and people did two stops. So it absolutely doesn’t make sense – they’re too hard for that track.”
“They went softer to try to encourage more pit stops. There’s no point in them going softer with the tyres if they’re just going to take different harder tyres everywhere.
“This is exactly what they did in the last few races of last year. They brought harder and harder tyres and we just ended up doing one stop.
“And last year they said they didn’t want to interfere in the Championship so they took conservative tyres, but I never really understood what that meant.”
