Tyre meet­ing

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Driv­ers met with Pirelli at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix to dis­cuss how the wet weather tyres could be im­proved. The wet rub­ber was crit­i­cised af­ter the Brazil­ian GP ear­lier this month and im­prove­ments are set to be made, with one idea be­ing to cre­ate a sec­ond wet tyre to suit tracks with dif­fer­ent char­ac­ter­is­tics. “It was a very pro­duc­tive dis­cus­sion be­cause we do not test the wet tyres a lot in de­vel­op­ment tests or dur­ing events,” said Pirelli rac­ing di­rec­tor Mario Isola.
