THE THREE NOMINATED COMPOUNDS

THE CIRCUIT FROM A TYRE POINT OF VIEW

MARIO ISOLA - HEAD OF CAR RACING
“In Mexico, we again maintain our principle of bringing softer compounds than last year whenever possible, in the pursuit of increased performance and more exciting races. This is actually the second consecutive year that we are bringing a new tyre to Mexico, as last year the supersoft was nominated there for the first time. Only two races have been run on the current version of the track before, so it’s not one of the venues that the teams are most familiar with. This means that there will be some learning to do with the ultrasoft in particular during free practice”.

WHAT’S NEW?   
• The ultrasoft tyre comes to Mexico City for the very first time and has proved very popular: many drivers have selected the maximum number of 10 sets.
• Following the support for Susan G.Komen® foundation in the United States, the charitable focus this weekend will be on the victims of the Mexico City earthquake earlier this year.
• Italy’s Paolo Andreucci recently clinched a remarkable 10th Italian Rally Championship title, using Pirelli tyres on his Peugeot Italia 208 T16.
