Compared to last year, the racers noted a higher level of grip, but the track remains slippery, and the tire wear is low.
The head of Motorsport Pirelli’s Mario Isola summed up Friday in Sochi: “last year we set a goal to achieve the difference between the compounds per second, and we achieved it. In qualifying and the race pilots will prefer the Supersoft and Ultrasoft.
The level of deterioration of rubber is still low, as the track was still slippery, but the ground, however, was rougher.
