Physically I think it's going to be a huge challenge for the drivers. Of course they are all great athletes today, they do a lot of preparation. You think if we go three seconds quicker than what we've seen already, which is like three years' development normally, that's amazing performance.

It's one of those fun fair rides isn't it, where you arrive at 5G, make you feel a bit queasy. It depends what circuit you are at. I would think a stint at Silverstone for 30, 40 laps is going to be pretty exhausting for a driver. Well very exhausting, I think even [here at Barcelona] when you add 20 degrees [Celsius] and they are actually going flat out in race trim.

It is quite shocking. Even now, you are talking 5G corners ... a road car, top Ferrari, Lambo, [would be] 1.2 or 1.3G. These are getting to levels now that, I don't know.... Maybe some clever doctors will tell us that we're getting close to black out point, I don't know what it is. But certainly when I was looking at Turn 3 it was quite impressive. I'm sure a normal human being wouldn't be able to.

Every photo we've released, if you read the comments people make, there's not one negative. Everybody loves it and they are saying it looks aggressive, it looks dramatic... it looks sportier, more aggressive as a product.

It'll probably go the other way and we'll be sat here and you'll be saying 'How does Pirelli feel now that the racing is boring, there's no overtaking and no pitstops'. We've already written that script I think and we'll see that coming...but we did for six years what we were asked to do. We've been given a different challenge and we're trying to meet that. I'm absolutely sure we will see things we want to change during the year.

Visually, this is one of the steps Formula One has made that is absolutely in the right direction. Just need to add a bit of noise.
