There is some complete BS going on with Pirelli and Hembrey. Last year, near end of 2012, this is what he said about the upcoming 2013 tyres. http://www.formula1....13/1/14205.html
"extending the tyre’s peak performance window"http://www.autoevolu...sion-52027.html
According to Pirelli’s Paul Hembrey, “Both the compounds and construction will be different, which means that the characteristics of the new tyres will be altered, with a wider working range"http://blogs.bettor....-1-news-a205846
"This tyre, I think, has got a much wider working range and that's going to make it much easier to get the tyre working from the start of the season."
"Like Button, he also said that the tyres will provide a wider working range to the teams."
Yet now Hembrey says this about the 2013 tyres, just before the upcoming Barcelona change.http://www.planetf1....a-wider-window-
"We're introducing a revised version of our hard tyre in Spain, which is closer in characteristics to the 2012 tyre," said the Pirelli motorsport boss. "This new tyre gives us a wider working temperature window"
So let me summarise. Hembrey, and then Jenson after trialling the 2013 spec tyres in end of 2012, said that the 2013 tyres will have a wider working range.
NOW, after running the 2013 tyres for a few races and before the upcoming Barcelona change for the hard tyre, Hembrey comes out and says that they are changing the hard compound closer to the 2012 to give it a wider working range!
Pirelli, what a wicked web we weave when we first learn to deceive. If you're going to wholesale bullish*t, at least remember wtf you said earlier so as not to completely contradict yourself and lose what little thread of credibility you were hanging onto.
Let me get the popcorn whilst the Pirelli apologists swallow this.
