The head of Motorsport Pirelli’s Mario Isola was pleased with how was the first Grand Prix of the season-2017.
Sebastian Vettel brought Ferrari their first victory of 2015!
Winning the race was won by Sebastian Vettel, which started on Ultrasoft and managed to withstand a larger segment than the owner of the pole Lewis Hamilton, before moving to Soft.
All finished except two, have implemented a strategy of one pit stop, and the first four have chosen only the strategy Ultrasoft/Soft.
The race was used by all three staff, and the best lap (1.26,538) in the performance of Kimi Raikkonen was more than two seconds faster than last year’s result.
Most of the riders started on Ultrasoft, while debutant Antonio Giovinazzi was the best started the race on Soft.
“Start of a new era of Formula 1 failed – said Mario Isola. – Riders attacked at the limit from the start to the finish. As we expected, the majority preferred different variations of the strategy of one stop. Leaders decided in the second period to put Soft.
The wear was quite low due to the nature of the route, rarely demanding on the tires. Drivers managed to set fast laps at the end of the race on the tire that has stood for more than 30 laps.”
