Pirelli are authoritative no attack at below-playing the demands aloft the tyres at a real hot Barcelona this weekend.
“The commonplace aerial temperatures in Barcelona in mid-August will get admission to thermal abasement on a clue already acclaimed for reality boxy on tyres, so it’s hobby to be decidedly important to administer them and ascendancy any overheating that influences traction,” stated tyre arch Mario Isola.
“Free convenance can be acute to appropriately establishing tyre behaviour underneath those laborious instances. With the regularly occurring motors truth faster than whenever – as Silverstone afresh normal – and the Spanish Grand Prix never fact run in August earlier than, this need to be the fine formidable chase for tyres we’ve got obvious on the Circuit de Catalunya.”
While Mercedes’ trackside engineering arch Andy Shovlin is alert of the claiming that faces his aggregation in this weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix in a while its tyre blistering-brought on defeat by means of a ablaze Max Verstappen aftermost Sunday.
“We’re able-bodied acquainted that if we do not get on top of it, we’ve got addition Sunday of attractive silly.”

Mercedes were the by myself aggregation adversity the baking affair at the Silverstone 70th Anniversary chase to annihilation like this admeasurement (although Nico Hulkenberg turned into affected into an adventitious third forestall in his Racing Point back a abscess aback opened up on a rear tyre).
The aggregation has by myself a few canicule to get a fuller compassionate of the botheration as we arch to a clue place the corners are endured and certainly speedy and do not get plentiful of a adventitious to air-conditioned bottomward afore the bound twists of the final zone. The forecasted temperature mid-August in Barcelona is analogously aerial to Silverstone, possibly better.
Pirelli is bringing the hardest 3 tyres of its ambit (C1, 2 and three), so a footfall more difficult than Sunday’s race. But Mercedes was adversity its baking on each the C3 and C2 tyres at Silverstone (and failed to use the C4).
The minimal pressures imposed by using Pirelli receive been bargain (to a still-high 23psi the front/20.5 rear) and the superior camber caster acclimation has been certain beneath significantly. The clue itself does no longer hire honestly as abundant quantity on the tyres as Silverstone and the superior downforce stages for lap time are extra than at Silverstone. Whether this final is a handy or demanding agency for Mercedes depends aloft what the basis account of the baking changed into.
