THE THREE NOMINATED COMPOUNDS

THE CIRCUIT FROM A TYRE POINT OF VIEW

MARIO ISOLA - HEAD OF CAR RACING
“The natural selection for this type of circuit is the three softest compounds in the range. Having said that, we’ve seen in the past that Austria also has the capability to spring a few surprises. When we get there we’ll see if one stops or two are more likely, but it will be important for teams to build some flexibility into the strategies as well. Longitudinal forces – so traction and braking – are the key aspects in Austria, rather than cornering. In spite of that, there’s still a good chance of the lap record coming down, as we saw in Baku”.

WHAT’S NEW?   
• There are no major alterations to the Red Bull Ring compared to last year.
• Pirelli has been working in another famous mountain location recently: a new all-electric Acura has tackled the famous Pikes Peak hill climb on P Zero slick tyres.
