German Grand Prix: Friday press conference - Pt.2

I think it is down to knowing exactly what the tyres are doing and how you are relative to your competitors. You will be a very clever person if you manage to sort that all out in your first simulation, to be honest.

Q: (Ian Parkes – Press Association).
Paul, you've touched on the difficulties of testing going into next season; how deep is the concern inside Pirelli that you won't have enough testing going into 2014 and will encounter problems like we've seen this year?

Paul Hembery:
Well, the good thing is that we're now talking in a lot more detail and that will carry on over the next few weeks. We feel that there is a need to do some level of testing with representative cars. You can imagine that there could be some surprises again next season and maybe there will need to be some check on balance done then as well. But at the moment, there isn't a clear indication of what we should do and we hope and judging by the discussions we've had there is a willingness to look at solutions that work for everybody, for the sport and for Pirelli.
