Bridgestone pleased with tyre performance over British GP weekend

1 Mins read

Bridgestone have been reflecting on another successful weekend at the British Grand Prix where both compounds of tyres proved themselves to be durable and delivered fast lap times.

Hirohide Hamashima was pleased with the performance of the tyres around the new Silverstone layout today. “Today we saw both compounds working well even at this severe Silverstone circuit,” said the Bridgestone Director of Motorsport Tyre Development.

“The new layout was an interesting and tough challenge for us and the drivers. There was excitement all over the weekend as everyone learnt the best approach here. The severity of the layout was illustrated by blistering on the front left tyres in the race. We saw punctures from contact which is something in the nature of motor racing. We also saw an additional pit stop because of flat spotted tyres and other strategic reasons.

“Thank you to Silverstone and the British public for a fantastic day here.”

Hiroshi Yawukawa, Director of Bridgestone Motorsport, was also very pleased with how the British Grand Prix weekend went. “Firstly, congratulations to Mark Webber and the Red Bull Racing team for their fantastic result and also to Silverstone, the home of British motorsport, for putting on an excellent event this weekend,” he said. “Even in our final year of Formula One we are still learning many things, so to race on this new Silverstone layout was a thrill for us.”
