Formula 1: Bridgestone is heating up its tyres

Sport Published the 22/02/2010

The Japanese manufacturer is continuing to develop its Formula 1 tyres. Last December it tested four dry track tyres during young pilot testing on the Jerez circuit in Spain.

These tests were conducted on cars full of fuel in order to simulate the race conditions of the coming season. The 2010 tyres will have to deal with heavier cars due to the ban on refuelling. The rubber will be modified, tyres will be narrower and in general, more resistant. The next track tests will start in Valencia (Spain) in February.
