Pirelli has revealed that it will take its 2014 tyres to the season-ending Brazilian Grand Prix to give teams the chance to sample the new rubber ahead of next season.

Drivers will be given the chance to run on the prototype tyre during the opening practice sessions at Interlagos, with Pirelli then hoping to run a number of other tests over the course of the winter.

Pirelli will also run a test with McLaren in Italy with an older-spec car to continue work on the new tyres.

"There's a couple of things that are happening quite quickly," he revealed to the press in Abu Dhabi. "We've got a 1000km test with McLaren coming up in Vallelunga and We will be bringing to the Brazil race for P1, a couple of sets of tyres of the prototype for next season.

"We're hopeful to do a couple of tests in December and January with an old-generation car and there's been some good ideas going forward as to what we could do during the pre-season itself.

"It's clearly a big step forward, if we're looking at it selfishly from our point of view, to be in Bahrain for pre-season testing, the temperatures will be right, aggressive track and that will be very, very useful for us to understand the real impact of the new cars."

Hembery also confirmed that Pirelli was still waiting to conclude its deal for 2014, with the final part of its agreement with the FIA to be signed.

"It's done really," he said. "There's one last piece to be done with the FIA. The lawyers are dealing with that - when you get lawyers involved with anything it tends to add time to whatever you're doing. So, it's just rumbling along."
