Bahrain Grand Prix 2013: 'One of the most demanding circuits,' says Pirelli

"It's a nice circuit that you definitely have to find a rhythm with," continued the former Ferrari stalwart. "If you do this, it will bring you a good lap time but it will also make sure that your tyres stay in the best possible condition, which will be an important part of the race."

Last year the order of race day had been three-stop strategies and the company is expecting the same to be true in 2013, although Hembery was hedging his bets until he was able to see how the cars fared out on the track for the first time in FP1.

"We expect about three stops per car, although we'll have to wait to get some running in on Friday before we can look at the data and make a more accurate prediction," he said.

First of all, spell check proof reading for Crash isn't going to cut it anymore. Pirelli is a circuit that Pirelli have little info about? Second, Pirelli say this about almost every single track they comment on. Look at last years articles. They said that each circuit was one of the most demanding on the tyres except for maybe two tracks. I stopped listening.
