Bridgestone F1 tyres
Bridgestone have announced that they are to introduce new constructions and compound of their tyres this year, mainly to the refuelling ban meaning heavier cars.
Also, the green stripe on the soft and extreme wet tyres are to remain. This is to support the FIA’s Make Cars Green campaign.
The chief engineer at Bridgestone Motorsport, Jun Matsuzaki, said:
“All compounds have changed from last year based on the feedback and data we gained last season as well as the rule changes for this season. The tyres are designed to be more durable for this season due to the heavier cars and different strategy options because of no more refuelling.”
Bridgestone are to leave F1 at the end of 2010.
