The 'aggressive' approach to tyre strategy is also reflected in Pirelli deciding to supply hard tyres as the primes but partner them with the soft rather than medium compound as the options.
"With a wider gap between the two nominated tyres than usual, both in terms of compound and performance, we could see some quite different strategies that are capable of springing a surpris," said Hembery.
"We were given an input when we started our adventure in F1 and we're still following that," he continued. "So while we obviously respect [Schumacher's input], it's one of a number and we carry on doing our work."
"We work on the input from the teams, so if the teams want us to take a different approach we can go back to an approach which is probably more akin to what you'd be doing in a tyre competition," Hembery added. "it depends on what the challenge is. We'll do whatever the sport wants us to do and at the moment ... That's the teams getting used to what would be for them, maybe changes to the car, slightly different change from ourselves in terms of challenge. As the season progresses you will see that they will master that."
