Pirelli turned on the warning signal before qualifying for the F1 São Paulo GP. After the single free practice session that took place this Friday (3) in Interlagos, the supplier noticed punctures in the tires, which could be a big problem.
This weekend, the Brazilian racetrack will host a Sprint race for the third consecutive time. Furthermore, the stage also marks the last of a trio of races, which started with the United States and also passed through Mexico.
So, after this morning’s activity, Mario Isola, sporting director of the Italian brand, informed about the problem. At least two cars were forced to stop after holes in the compounds were detected in the data.
“We had some holes due to debris. We also found some cuts in the tread and, of course, we will inform the FIA [tocleanthetrackIbelievetheproblemisinthepitlanemorethanonthetrackbutwehavetopayattentionbecausewehadsomegenuinetirepunctures”saidIsola[limparapistaAcreditoqueoproblemaestánopitlanemaisdoquenapistamastemosdeprestaratençãoporquetivemosalgunsfurosgenuínosnospneus”apontouIsola
