In today’s two sessions of the first stage F1 of the season-2017, Pirelli has been able to appreciate the difference in all the brought companydb.
Lewis Hamilton became the best in both sessions, showing their times on Ultrasoft. Mercedes was the only team who have tested the tyres with the purple markings in the first training session.
Both session, the weather remained warm and dry – the second training session started when the air temperature is 25 degrees Celsius.
The head of Motorsport Pirelli Mario Isola commented on the results of the two sessions: “Today’s time was five seconds faster than the first two trainings in a year, but now we first brought Ultrasoft.
The difference between Soft and Supersoft is around 0.7 seconds per lap. Same with tires with red and purple markings. On the tests in Barcelona, the difference was about 0.3-0.5 seconds.
This year the level of degradation of rubber is much lower than in the past. Together with the teams we need to analyze how much impact on the race strategy, the difference in wear between the compounds”.
