Series revamps points and tyre rules for 2012

"Although we will introduce a second compound, we have decided to keep only four sets of tyres per race weekend in order to control the costs," added Michel.

Pirelli's Racing Manager Mario Isola was also looking forward to the impact of the sorter option on race weekends. "Having two different compounds available for each event in 2012 will certainly spice up the action and narrow the gap between F1 and its feeder series, as the focus will not only be on tyre management skills but also on making the right tyre choice and planning race strategy accordingly," he said.

"I feel confident that our P Zero tyres combined with the new tyre rules will make the GP2 races even more interesting to watch next season."
