Last quote by Mario Isola

He had a big flat-spot and he damaged the construction. That's why coming back to the pits he started to lose a bit of tread and the tyre was damaged. We will investigate and check everything with the tyre is OK.feedback

Mario Isola quotes

Apr 08 2017 - China

If we look at China last year, the main limitation was the graining. Especially on the softer compound choices. So when we were talking about the wear life of the tyre it was because with the graining on the front you have accelerated wear. If you don't have graining, and the degradation so low, you can run a much longer stint also on the softest choices. That means that probably -- probably because we saw no running of dry tyres -- it is possible to have a race with just one stop, one set of super-softs used for quali, and one set of softs to finish the race.feedback

Apr 05 2017 - China

We're bringing the middle selection of compounds, but we expect teams to use mainly soft and super-soft, depending of course on the unpredictable weather: especially as the allocation is just two sets of medium. In the past, there has been some graining in China due to the long straights followed by tight corners, but we've seen in Barcelona testing that graining is generally reduced this year, so it will be good to have that confirmed. In case of wet and possibly cool conditions, we will supply wet weather tyres in a different compound, with the target of giving the drivers more grip.feedback

The teams completed 7427 laps of Barcelona during pre - season testing, using all the compounds but concentrating on the medium and soft tyres, which were the ones best suited to Montmeló . In Melbourne, it's going to be interesting to collect more data on the ultrasoft and supersoft compounds, which we've not been able to fully assess up to now.feedback

I'm happy to achieve the targets that were decided and the target we have to develop the new tyres. The request was clear: less degradation and an increase in performance to have the lap times quicker by five seconds. This has been achieved. Less overheating to give the opportunity for the drivers to push, the indications say we are in the right direction.feedback

Mar 14 2017

The overheating was a clear request. The drivers don't want overheating because when they are following another car they lose grip, they overheat the surface and they cannot fight again. That was a target and the feedback is positive in this direction -- maybe not completely zero overheating, but a big step compared to last year. Degradation shouldn't be zero, because otherwise you don't have any crossover. We need to have degradation and delta lap times that are making it possible to do different strategies, and in this case you keep the show.feedback

What we have to consider is that cars will have huge development this year so we have to reassess degradation numbers this year, especially at the last part of the season. I'm sure when we go to Suzuka we will use hard, medium and soft because the severity of the circuit will mean the degradation will be different to what we can see here and now because of more downforce, more power and the normal development of the car. In the first year when you have such a big change in technical regulations, we know that the rate of development is much higher than when the regulations stabilise.feedback

Mar 14 2017

This happens for sure if you have degradation that is close to zero. If you have three compounds with different lap times but degradation is close to zero, then everyone will use the softest compound for all the laps except one. But the request is to have different degradation, not zero degradation.feedback
