Force India VJM04 – Special attention on Pirelli tyres


Jerez , February testing

 

Pirelli replaced Bridgestone as the official tyre supplier in 2011 season . During the first two Winter tests at Valencia and Jerez  the front tyres of Pirelli were found to be  less “strong” compared to Bridgestone , suffering greater degradation . For that cause Force India at Jerez housed an infra red sensor inside the left mirror to monitor tyre temperature . The data gathered will help the team to understand tyre working temperature , tyre ware linked to temperature and to adjust better front suspension  set up by increasing or decreasing tyre contact surface on  track in order to get the maximum from the Pirelli tyres  .
