Tyres At Monza
Posted 28 August 2006 - 02:23 PM
"The tyres can give you more than half a second, so I think they will be the deciding point."
Both Ferrari and Renault will test heavily at Monza this coming week, so which tyre will be the fastest? The Bridgestone did well at Indy which is also a high speed ciruit.

Give me a roof over my head, some food to eat and a fast car. That's all I need.
That's all I'll ever need.

Not sure Bridgestones are high speed circuit dominators, canada, bahrain and britain are pretty high speed with britain being mostly high speed corners which suits the Renaults clean aero best.
High temp suit Bridgestone and low temp Michelin's. Hot enough climate but i'm sure the high speed corner's are in the shade from tree's which could be an unknown factor.
Brakes could be an issue aswell, the Ferrari's fronts where chugging out dust late in the Turkish GP. McLaren use the best brakes an F1 team can get, sometimes Ferrari and Toyota did aswell but the high speed might not suit them because of their high temprature requirements to be effective (flying down a long straight could drop the temp too much)

Thats quite funny when you consider that the first few years after Michelin entered F1 the Michelin tyres performed better in the heat while the bridgetones did better in the cooler conditions.
