Hembery expects interesting early season tyre choices
Pirelli chief Paul Hembery on Thursday said he is expecting Formula 1 to enjoy an exciting start to the 2016 world championship season season.
For this year, the tyre rules have been tweaked so that drivers can select from a range of three compounds brought by Pirelli to each grand prix.
For the first four races, the Italian marque is bringing the medium, soft and super soft, and Pirelli chief Hembery said he thinks the situation will spice up F1.
“I don’t think at the start of the year you’re going to see the same as normal,” he was quoted by Britain’s Sky.
“I’m quite sure – and rumour has it – that some of the decisions by the teams for the start of the year are going to be interesting. So that’s quite exciting,” said Hembery.
“But our view is that during the year there will probably be a lot of normalising between the teams where the choices will become rather similar as the season goes on,” he added.
