Domenicali and Brawn says tire testing is needed for new Pirellis

Ross Brawn

Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenicali and FOTA chief Ross Brawn agrees there must be some testing for Pirelli, the newly announced 2011 tire supplier.

In the interest of safety, they both said there should be some testing in the "late summer and early winter".

A Mercedes reserve driver raised his hand to do some tire testing in the "interest of safety for all" which was of course mightly nice of him.

"Yes, this is what we have to discuss with the tire manufacturer as soon as we have decided and we know who will be the supplier for next year," he said.

"Clearly we need to have some specific testing to make sure the tires are sorted properly," agreed Brawn.

"It may take a few iterations to get where we want to be and undoubtedly there will be a degree of conservatism at the beginning because we can't afford to have any problems with compounds.

"But we're all there to help the new tyre supplier and I think we've got a good chance of success," he added.
