And Camaçari in Bahia
Bridgestone heads to Sao Paulo for the Brazilian Grand Prix on October 16-18, where the medium and super soft compound Potenzas will be put to use around the undulating anti-clockwise Interlagos circuit.
This is the penultimate race of the season and the final time that this allocation will be seen. The combination of medium and super soft has been seen previously this year in Australia, China, Bahrain and Germany.
Hirohide Hamashima - Bridgestone Director of Motorsport Tyre Development, said:
What are the challenges of Interlagos?
"This is a very challenging and exciting circuit. The first corner comes at the end of a long straight, and it goes downhill, meaning that finding the correct braking point is difficult. We expect to see some overtaking and brake locking here, and this could damage the tyres. The circuit surface often starts very dirty and we see a lot of improvement over the weekend. As we saw last year, the weather can also be a very big challenge."
What are the primary tyre performance considerations?
"Interlagos is a circuit where high grip is a priority. We have the stiffness gap in our allocation, so teams will have to work out the best set-ups for both tyres, and there should be many strategy considerations and possibilities. Traditionally we would see a lot of graining here, due to the initially dirty surface and the twisty infield section, however this will be less of a factor this season, due to slick tyres being more resistant to graining relative to the grooved tyres we used before."
Vettel already know which questions to answer not in Sao Paulo ABOUT THE CIRCUIT PAULISTA MORE NEWS FROM FORMULA 1
"Brazil is like a drug that F-1 does not get tired," says the text on your opening. "With great food, powerful drinks, intoxicating music (but not as intoxicating as the caipirinha) and beautiful people, and not like?", Follows. At follow-up, the team says that all have enjoyed the facilities found in the paddock at Interlagos, "but like all drugs, there are times that the best thing to say no." So really begins the "survival guide" for the city of Sao Paulo, placing a series of questions where the answer must always be "no." "This watch is original?", "Would like your eighth caipirinha?", "I have to stop at a red light?", "I would find a beautiful girl I know?", "It is really a girl?" "want more meat?", "I can park your car?", "is that my wife will believe that the thong in my bag is a gift for her?", among others. Now Vetel already know that these questions have to say "NO" .. Unfortunately it is true that the Mayor Gilberto Kassab ,José Serra Governor and President Lula did not care for the parents as they should and I think it's good when the Formula 1 comes and talks about the problems of the countries in the world.
Fernado Alonso always very kind and Ambassador of UNICEF was an event to play ball with children in need ... If Governato Brazil's President Lula, Governor Jose Serra, Mayor Gilberto Kassab PROPER USE only 5% of that collect NOT HAD ANY CHILDREN POOR IN BRAZIL ... WOULD ALL SCHOOLS, MEDICAL, FOOD from birth to the School as it is in Europe ... but governments here do not care for anything ...
I would like to congratulate Shell in Brazil, which organized the press conference one of the most sophisticated places of Sao Paulo
