Pirelli have confirmed that in agreement with the teams each car was given 35 sets of tyres for the first test as follows. 1 set of soft, 6 sets of medium, 7 sets of hard, 3 sets of intermediate, 3 sets of wet, the super soft was not provided as it is not suitable for the Jerez circuit. The above tyres are the new for 2013 Pirelli tyres which are quite different to the 2012 tyres. Engine rev limiters cannot be touched. Teams will run 4 fuel load levels in testing, 20kg, 60kg, 80kg and 140kg, most of the running (testing) is done with 60/80kg loads, 140kg (full tank) is used for a race simulation, 20kg load is used for 6 laps run, less than 20kg is used to simulate qualifying. Although things will change with every outing of a car I do take testing seriously and do read a lot out of them.
