TEAMS CONTINUE SEASON PREPARATION BY TRYING OUT ALL THE TYRES IN BARCELONA APART FROM THE FULL WET


“Once again in Barcelona, as was the case at the first test in Jerez, we had quite cool weather and a sprinkling of rain, but the teams were still able to get through a considerable testing distance, with all the compounds apart from the full wet tried out, although there was very little significant running on the intermediate. Montmeló is well known as a technical and wide-ranging circuit, which makes it an ideal test venue to investigate every aspect of tyre behaviour. It’s still too early to draw too many conclusions about the year ahead, but the lap times already indicate that the cars are even faster this year, with many of the testing times comfortably inside last year’s pole position. The teams were able to work through quite a varied programme, including pit stop procedure, in order to acquaint themselves with the characteristics of the 2015 Pirelli range, and match them to their new cars. This work will continue during the next test in Barcelona, which takes place from next Thursday onwards, and is the final opportunity for the teams to prepare their cars before the first grand prix of the season.
At this time, we’re also pleased to announce that as was the case last year, Pirelli will be the Title Sponsor of the Formula 1 Gran Premio de España in May, and the Formula 1 Magyar Nagydíj 2015 in July.”
