Pirelli provides new tyre for Sao Paulo

Pirelli to provide a new compound soft tyre at Interlagos
Pirelli will take a new compound of soft tyre to Interlagos this weekend for the final round of the 2011 F1 season.

The new compound was used in Friday practice at the Nurburgring and made another appearance in the Young Driver Test held in Abu Dhabi last week.

The soft and medium compound tyres will be available for use throughout the weekend at Interlagos, while Pirelli will also provide an experimental hard tyre to teams during Friday practice.

“Preparations for the 2012 season are well underway, so it will be really interesting to hear the thoughts of the drivers about the new hard and soft tyres that we will be trying out in Brazil,” Pirelli motorsport director Paul Hembery said. “We've already collected plenty of information on the new soft tyre from the young driver test, so it will be useful to compare that to real race data.

“It's important not to get too distracted by the names of the tyres though: what we're calling a 'soft' for now could end up as a medium for next year, as that's what the testing process is all about. In general, the tyres are going to be less conservative next year as the second half of this season has shown how well the teams have understood our product, allowing us to make some reasonably aggressive choices such as supersoft and soft for Korea.

“We're delighted to be ending the season in Brazil: not only is it a legendary circuit with an amazing atmosphere but it is also a key market for Pirelli.”
