Michelin facing Silverstone challenge
Michelin will face a new challenge next week when they head to Silverstone – after their only day of testing at the circuit since returning to the sport was cut short by rain.
But, despite the lack of testing time, Michelin Racing’s Technical Director Nicolas Goubert says that they’re not expecting to face any major issues that have cropped up elsewhere this year.
“We know that we’re not going to get extreme conditions at Silverstone. They arise from a combination of track layout and surface, and weather.
“We know that the track there is more or less evenly split, the surface is not brand new and not that old either, and while the temperature might not be very high, it’s unlikely to be freezing. It should be fine.”
