Mercedes boss Toto Wolff expects that the upcoming season will be more spectacular than the previous one.
According to the new regulation, cars have become faster by several seconds per lap because their aerodynamics has undergone significant changes, and the tires are much wider. Thus, the level of clamping force increased by 20 percent.
“I would like to thank Pirelli for their work, — said the wolf in his video message to the Italian tire manufacturers. Before them was a difficult task to create something new, and thus eligible under the new regulations, which for all still remains a mystery.
While the tests of the new car are successful, and the results hint at what race in the upcoming year will be spectacular”.
The FIA asked Pirelli to make tyres with a lower level of degradation and more resistant to overheating.
“Before them was a difficult task to find a balance, creating a tire with high grip level and a small level of depreciation — continued wolf. — Now everything goes as we expected, so the season-2017 promises to be interesting.”
