Pirelli to discuss F1 2012 tyre regulations changes

20th October 2011

Italian tyre manufacturer Pirelli is set to discuss changes to tyre regulations for next year's Formula One (F1) championship, it has been revealed.

Tyres have been a main talking point of the F1 season this year, with Pirelli looking to limit the amount of sets teams use over a race weekend and controversy surrounding drivers' decisions to save their tyres by not running in Q3 qualifying.

Autosport has reported that Pirelli's motorsport director Paul Hembery met Oliver Weingarten, the secretary general of the Formula One Teams' Association (FOTA) recently to discuss the issues.

Following a positive outcome, Hembery is set to meet FOTA's Sporting Regulations Working Group in India to further discuss the matter.

Oliver Weingarten, the secretary general of the F1 Teams' Association, said: "We had a constructive meeting with Pirelli on Friday, where we discussed a number of issues and we look forward to further discussions with Pirelli going forward, and that is why we have invited them to the SRWG meeting in India."

The Indian Grand Prix is due to be held from October 28th until 30th at the Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida.
