Super soft tire to spice up more races - Bridgestone
(GMM) Before departing F1, Bridgestone is considering equipping teams with its 'super soft' compound at more races in 2010.
The compound is credited with spicing up the recent Canadian grand prix by graining and degrading on the track's slippery and smooth surface in cool conditions, thereby opening up a range of pitstop strategies.
And according to a report on Autosprint magazine's Italian-language auto.it website, although harder tires are necessary at Silverstone, the softest compound is tipped to re-appear for the subsequent Hockenheim round.
The report said Bridgestone will be happy to supply the super-soft to spice up further races, if as in Canada the tires are still deemed to be adequate from a safety standpoint.
"Safety is our priority, so if we can avoid the phenomenon of blistering then we can supply the super soft at other races this season," director of motor sport Hirohide Hamashima is quoted as saying.
