Who said tyres are boring – certainly not us and neither would any self-respecting Formula One fan judging by the buzz surrounding Pirelli’s return to the sport as the sole tyres supplier.
With the season-opening Australian Grand Prix getting underway early Sunday morning and McLaren’s two dazzling British drivers Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton looking in fine form, anticipation is mounting in Melbourne.
And as Jake Humphrey, the BBC’s F1 presenter, has just written in the London Evening Standard: “What will we be talking about? Amazingly, the tyres! It might not sound like the world’s most riveting topic, however, Pirelli have returned to Formula One as the sole supplier, after a 20-year break and brought with them the perfect tyres for unpredictable racing. Hard to heat and difficult to make last, that best of all will lead to multiple pitstops and mixed-up grids in the early races.”
We can’t wait and will be keeping you posted on all the F1 tyre news throughout the season.
