The head of Motorsport Pirelli’s Mario Isola told about the expectations from the upcoming race in Sochi, which the Italian tire company will bring three of the most soft composition of tyres Ultrasoft, Supersoft and Soft.
“The race will take place in Sochi after a two-day test in Bahrain, so it will be interesting to see how the experience of work affect the results and the status of tyres during the Grand Prix of Russia, – quotes the Isola the press service of the Pirelli. – At first glance, not too abrasive asphalt track in Sochi and more wear-resistant tires this year should allow for the distance with one pit stop.
However, we first will bring in Sochi composition Ultrasoft, therefore, remains to understand what will be the effect with the machines of the new generation.
The difference in speed between the soft compositions is relatively small, therefore all three compounds can be used in the race.”
