Buemi: Pirelli tyres will play ‘big part’ in Japanese Grand Prix

4th October 2011

Pirelli tyres will play a major role in the upcoming Japanese Grand Prix, according to Formula One (F1) driver Sebastien Buemi.

The Toro Rosso star has revealed that he is looking forward to making good use of the Italian firm's medium and soft tyre compounds during this Sunday's (9th October) race.

He said: "We have seen this year that Pirelli tyres have played a big part in adding to the excitement on Sunday afternoon and that should be the case again here.

"We will have the medium and soft compounds to work with on a track that is generally tough on tyres, with quite an abrasive surface. As usual, making the best use of both compounds could be the key to a good result here."

Buemi added that the atmosphere at Suzuka is always special as the fans are prepared to sit in the grandstands late into the night to watch the action in the pit lane.

Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel is just one point away from retaining his world championship.
