Head of the technical Department of the McLaren Tim Goss expressed concerns about the uniformity of distribution of the characteristics of the new tyres Pirelli.
With the introduction of Superhard compounds and Hypersoft total number of trains was increased to seven, and Goss, in principle, was pleased with what he saw on postseason tests in Abu Dhabi. The specialist expressed his belief that lap time in the upcoming season will improve from 0.5 to 1 second, and in season there will be more races with two pit stops. At the same time, he expressed concern due to the uneven distribution characteristics of different compositions.
“Spacing characteristics between the different types of rubber are not always the same, – quotes Tim Crash.net. – Between some of the compositions are large gaps between the others is minimal. This is what we found during the tests. But in General, I think Pirelli is moving in the right direction.
We still have much to learn about the new tires. Of course, we tested it in Abu Dhabi but need to see how it will work on other tracks”.
