F1 2013 – Pirelli to use Kevlar tyres for German grand prix

Formula One News » F1 2013 – Pirelli to use Kevlar tyres for German grand prix

Pirelli are expected to announce that they will revert back to tyres built around Kevlar belts ahead of the 2013 German grand prix.

The daily telegraph reports ‘It is understood the Italian manufacturer will issue a statement today, with a switch from steel to Kevlar belts – which it intended to make in Canada last month before the change was blocked by a handful of teams – coming into effect immediately,’

‘A return to 2012 tyres, which also featured Kevlar belts, would have been the preferred solution this weekend but there is insufficient time to prepare them given the five-day turnaround from Sunday’s race to Friday’s first practice session at the Nurburgring. The use of 2012 tyre structures, with 2013 compounds, is likely to come into effect from Hungary at the end of July.’
