Pirelli makes second plea to F1 teams over tyre use

6th October 2011

Italian tyre manufacturer Pirelli has made a second plea to Formula One (F1) teams to consider using fewer tyres next season.

Earlier this year, the firm called for F1 teams to use one less set of tyres over the race weekend as the majority of competitors fail to use one set of hard compound Pirelli tyres.

However, the teams have been reluctant to agree to the proposals as yet, prompting Pirelli's motorsport director Paul Hembery to make another effort to convince firms to alter the rules.

He told Autosport: "There is no movement on it yet, and I will have a go with the teams again. We need to go with the team principals and give them all the facts from the season so far, and say; maybe we can use them on Friday, so teams have an extra set on Friday morning.

Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel could clinch back-to-back world titles at this weekend's (9th October) Japanese Grand Prix.
