Pirelli is pleased with the performance of the tires on Friday. The difference in lap times was almost exactly the same as calculated – 1.2 seconds between Hard and Medium, and 0.7 seconds between Medium and Soft, but it will decrease as the asphalt becomes covered with used rubber.
Simone BerraPirelli chief engineer: “All three compounds performed as expected on Friday, although the difference in speed between Hard and Medium was slightly smaller than we expected, so Hard tires can also play a role in the race – a variety of strategies are possible.
The degradation turned out to be small, even on Soft we did not see bubbling. The condition of the asphalt improved during the day – in the morning it was covered with sand, and the gusty wind affected the balance of the cars.
On Friday there was a lot of talk about “glued gravel” on the outer radius of Turns 11 and 12. It seems to have worked well, we didn’t see any negative effects on the tyres.”
