Sauber unsure of how tyres will perform at Indian Grand Prix

24th October 2011

Formula One (F1) team Sauber has revealed it is unsure how the Pirelli tyres will perform at the upcoming Indian Grand Prix.

This year marks the first time that F1 teams will be competing at the Buddh International Circuit and Sauber has admitted that the track will be somewhat of an unknown quantity.

James Kay, Sauber's technical director, claimed that tyre selection could prove decisive on Sunday's (October 30th) race.

"We will have the soft and the hard tyre compound. A lot depends on track temperatures, but given the nature of the track with several highly loaded corners, it could be that the hard tyre will warm up okay and last," he said.

"Maybe the soft will struggle, but you never really know until you're there," he added.

Mr Kay added that his team underperformed in Korea due to too much understeer but did not expect this to affect drivers Kamui Kobayashi and Sergio Perez in India.
