MANDATORY SETS FOR THE 2017 GRANDS PRIX OF AUSTRALIA AND CHINA

NEW MATERIALS AND A COMPLETELY FRESH DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
DEFINE THE NEW-GENERATION RANGE OF TYRES

PIRELLI ANNOUNCES COMPOUND CHOICES AND MANDATORY SETS
FOR THE 2017 GRANDS PRIX OF AUSTRALIA AND CHINA 

NEW MATERIALS AND A COMPLETELY FRESH DESIGN PHILOSOPHY
DEFINE THE NEW-GENERATION RANGE OF TYRES 

With the 2016 championship just over, Pirelli is already thinking to the coming F1 season. As the tyre nomination for long-haul events has to be made 15 weeks in advance, whereas for European races the deadline is nine weeks in advance, Pirelli announces the following three compounds for the first and second rounds of the 2017 Formula One season.


In AUSTRALIA*, to be held (March 24 – 26) on the Albert Park circuit in Melbourne:
P Zero
Yellow soft
P Zero
Red supersoft
P Zero
Purple ultrasoft

These are the tyres that must be available (one of them to be used) at some point in the race:
One set of P Zero
Yellow soft
One set of P Zero
Red supersoft

There are the tyres assigned for Q3 in qualifying:
One set of P Zero
Purple ultrasof

In CHINA*, to be held (April 7 – 9) on the Shanghai circuit:
P Zero
White medium
P Zero
Yellow soft
P Zero
Red supersoft

These are the tyres that must be available (one of them to be used) at some point in the race:
One set of P Zero
White medium
One set of P Zero
Yellow soft

There are the tyres assigned for Q3 in qualifying:
One set of P Zero
Red supersoft

Following the regulations, each driver must save for Q3 one set of the softest of the three nominated compounds. This set will be given back to Pirelli after Q3 for those who qualify in the top 10, but the remaining drivers will keep it for the race.

The teams are free to choose the remaining 10 sets; making up 13 sets in total for the weekend. 


2017 TYRES’ NEW FRAME

  • The range has been completely transformed, with new sizes (305/670-13 at the front and 405/670-13 at the rear) as well as new profiles, constructions and compounds.
  • The compounds in particular make use of entirely new materials and a completely fresh design philosophy.
  • After a very positive testing programme with the new sizes Pirelli has decided to additionally homologate a back-up compound alongside each of the five new base compounds. These extra compounds are formulated using more traditional criteria compared to the new base compounds.
  • For the first part of the championship, only the new-generation base compounds have been selected.
  • The back-up compounds could be introduced later during the course of next season to respond to any particular requirements once the real performance levels of the 2017 cars have been identified.

Japan GP på Viasat Motor til helgen

Viasat sender alt fra Japan GP på Viasat Motor HD som vanlig, husk at det er mulig å skifte til Svenske kommentatorer. En ting til, vil Lewis hamilton vinne årets Japan GP?

Jeg må inrømme at jeg er sjeleglad for at Japan GP blir arrangert på Suzuka og ikke på Fuji Speedway, i mine øyne er Suzuka en av de klassiske banene, nesten på linje med Monza og Spa Francorchamps.

Tider for Formel 1 i helgen, Norsk tidssone 🙂

[table id=5 /]

 


Litt statistikk fra Wikipedia:

Number of wins Driver Years
6 Germany Michael Schumacher 1995, 1997, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004
4 Germany Sebastian Vettel 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013
3 United Kingdom Lewis Hamilton 2007, 2014, 2015
2 Japan Motoharu Kurosawa 1969, 1973
Austria Gerhard Berger 1987, 1991
Brazil Ayrton Senna 1988, 1993
United Kingdom Damon Hill 1994, 1996
Finland Mika Häkkinen 1998, 1999
Spain Fernando Alonso 2006, 2008

 


 

Og i følge denne statistiken tyder vel alt på at Sebastian Vettel eller Lewis Hamilton skal dra i land seieren i årets Japan Grand Prix, allerede før første fritrening …

PIRELLI BELGIAN GRAND PRIX PREVIEW

Round 13 of 21
Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium, 25-28 August 2016

Following a short summer break, Formula 1 resumes at the one of the most epic drivers’ circuits of them all: Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium. The P Zero medium, soft and supersoft tyres have been nominated for the longest lap of the year at 7.004 kilometres, which places high-energy loads through the tyres. Spa-Francorchamps in fact provides a real multi-faceted challenge for the tyres, and by extension for the teams and drivers as well. The historic circuit at the foothills of the Ardennes is renowned for its changeable weather, meaning that there is a true microclimate to provide a constant additional parameter for the strategists to consider.

THE CIRCUIT FROM A TYRE POINT OF VIEW:

  • Loads through the tyres are among the biggest of the year due to the long and fast corners.
  • Elevation changes also create vertical forces for tyres through compressions like Eau Rouge.
  • Rain is quite likely, but it frequently rains just on one part of the circuit and not on another.
  • Set-up is a compromise between low drag for straights and downforce for corners: not easy.
  • There are plenty of overtaking opportunities, which mean that strategy options are quite open.
  • F1 returns with yet another back-to-back: after Spa it’s straight to Pirelli’s home race at Monza.

THE THREE NOMINATED COMPOUNDS:

  • White medium: a mandatory set that must be available for the race, low working range.
  • Yellow soft: again a mandatory set, should feature in the race but not ideal for long stints.
  • Red supersoft: will be used for qualifying with a focus on performance rather than durability.

HOW IT WAS A YEAR AGO:

  • Lewis Hamilton won comfortably with a two-stop strategy, changing tyres on laps 13 and 30.
  • Best alternative strategy: Max Verstappen finished eighth from 18th on the grid, having adopted a three-stop strategy and passing several cars on track.

PAUL HEMBERY, PIRELLI MOTORSPORT DIRECTOR:                     

“Spa-Francorchamps needs no introduction as one of the most iconic circuits out there. For the tyres, it’s a demanding track with the sort of high-energy loads that make it absolutely thrilling to drive. It’s not easy to find the right set-up but with such a long lap and plenty of overtaking opportunities, there are a number of different strategy permutations possible. During the summer break we’ve started testing the 2017-size tyres, and we look forward to a busy second half of the season as we continue the testing campaign and also move straight on to our home race the weekend after Belgium.”

WHAT’S NEW?

  • There are no significant changes to the Spa-Francorchamps circuit and infrastructure this year.
  • Esteban Ocon becomes a full-time Formula 1 driver, taking over from Rio Haryanto at Manor.

OTHER THINGS THAT HAVE CAUGHT OUR EYE RECENTLY:

  • Pirelli was at the forefront in Spa last month with the famous 24 Hours. It was the Italian firm’s biggest-ever event with a total of 65 cars fitted and 10,724 tyres over 29,269 cumulative laps.
  • The 2017 tyre tests with modified mule cars got underway at the beginning of the month, with Ferrari at Fiorano (driven by Sebastian Vettel and Esteban Gutierrez on wets) and Red Bull at Mugello (driven by Sebastien Buemi on slicks).
