Hirohide Hamashima - Bridgestone Director of Motorsport Tyre Development, said:What are the points of interest at Monza?"Monza is an exciting and challenging race venue. There are high speed straights and teams use low levels of downforce. This places more emphasis on the tyres in the corners as there is less aerodynamic assistance for grip. We see quite high levels of wear on the left hand tyres because of the high speed corners, and the rear tyres have high traction demands on them too, so it is quite a severe circuit on tyres. The track surface also presents a challenge, as some of it is older and rougher whilst some of it has been resurfaced quite recently so is smoother."Why has the tyre allocation changed from last season's?"Last year with the soft and medium compound allocation we saw blistering occur here, in particular on the soft compound. With the hard and medium compound allocation blistering should be less of a factor for the weekend."
