Pirelli F1 boss Paul Hembery says that the Italian company will probably revise its tyres in time for the British GP at the end of June.
Pirelli had already changed the hard compound for Spain. However Hembery conceded that the four-stop strategies employed by most of the front runners in Barcelona – including winner Fernando Alonso – represented one stop too many.
“Strategy was again at the forefront of the Spanish Grand Prix, which as usual was very demanding on the tyres because of the unique characteristics of this circuit,” he said.
“This is why we saw high levels of degradation, which should not be seen again to this extent for the rest of the year. Our aim is to have between two and three stops at every race, so it’s clear that four is too many. In fact, it’s only happened once before, in Turkey during our first year in the sport. We’ll be looking to make some changes, in time for Silverstone, to make sure that we maintain our target and solve any issues rapidly.”
