A Lap of the Circuit of the Americas
Pirelli say they are as ready as possible for the Circuit of the America’s inaugural grand prix in Austin. With two of Pirelli’s engineers having inspected the circuit over the summer, looking at the track surface and layout in detail with sophisticated laser measuring equipment they are confident with their tyre allocation. And now Formula One’s tyre provider has released their simulation of a lap of the sport’s newest stop on the calendar ahead of next month’s race.
“There’s no doubt that preparing for a circuit that is completely new is more difficult than going to one of the established venues,” says Pirelli’s motorsport director Paul Hembery. “However, we now feel fully ready for this magnificent track, where we will bring the P Zero Silver hard and P Zero White medium tyres. The technology and know-how that we have at our disposal means that we can forecast some very accurate predictions without actually having raced at a circuit these days, thanks to the preparation work from our engineers.”
