Pirelli boss Mario Isola writes that the F1 teams can expect problems with the wear of the rubber again this weekend. In any case, the Circuit de Catalunya already demands a lot from the rubber, but this weekend it will be extra tough for the tires. That writes the tire boss on the Pirelli site.
“It will be the third time that the teams will drive in Barcelona this year after the test weeks in the spring, but the conditions are very different. Not only because of the warmer weather, but also because of the developments the cars have gone through,” writes Isola .
“This track is normally tough on tires, but with the expected high temperatures it will get much worse. The free practice will be crucial to determine the right tire strategy. This will be the most demanding Grand Prix for the tires we have ever seen. at the Circuit de Catalunya. ”
