Bridgestone heads to a new Formula 1 destination as it takes its hard and soft compound Potenza tyres to the first ever Korean Grand Prix at Yeongam near the city of Mokpo on October 22-24.
The all-new Korean International Circuit will give teams and drivers a real challenge as it has never previously held a motorsport event. This means that the teams and Bridgestone will have to rely on simulation data before taking to the track for the first time on the Friday of the Grand Prix.
