Pirelli and Rosneft, in the context of the agreement signed last May for the production and supply of synthetic rubber in Nakhodka, today reached a new agreement which calls for, on the basis of a short list, the identification within three months of a new technological partner for the further development of activities in the rubber sector, including Styrene-Butadiene Rubber (SBR), in that region. Under the terms of the MOU, Rosneft and future partner will analyze the ways in which the joint production of synthetic rubber could be launched in Nakhodka, while Pirelli will collaborate in the related Research and Development activities.
TYRE NOMINATIONS FOR BRAZILIAN GRAND PRIX ALTERED Milan, October 17, 2014 – After a meeting of the Tyre Working Group, the tyre nomination for the Brazilian Grand Prix (November 6-9) has been changed, following Pirelli’s proposal and with the unanimous agreement of all the teams. Although the hard and medium nomination has been used in Brazil for the last two years, the recent resurfacing of the Interlagos track has prompted the change to medium and soft. This new choice is the same nomination as the United States Grand Prix the weekend before

MERCEDES SEALS FIRST CONSTRUCTORS’ CHAMPIONSHIP WITH PIRELLI NICO ROSBERG SETS HIS PERSONAL BEST LAP TIME ON MEDIUM TYRES THAT ARE 51 LAPS OLD JUST ONE PIT STOP FOR MOST COMPETITORS IN SOCHI BUT MANY DIFFERENT STRATEGIES Victory for Lewis Hamilton and second place for Nico Rosberg at the inaugural Russian Grand Prix has given Mercedes its first constructors’ championship with Pirelli. Juan Manuel Fangio drove a Mercedes during his 1954 driver championship-winning season, during which he also used a Pirelli-equipped Maserati, but this is the first time that Mercedes have claimed the title in their own right since the constructors’ championship was established in 1958. Hamilton took victory from pole, but Rosberg’s performance was all the more remarkable as he changed from P Zero Yellow soft to P Zero White medium tyres on the opening lap, following a lock-up and flat-spot after the start.

HAMILTON ON POLE WITH SOFT TYRE FOR INAUGURAL RUSSIAN GRAND PRIX LAP TIME DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MEDIUM AND SOFT DOWN TO 1.2 SECONDS ONE STOP STRATEGY POSSIBLE: WEAR AND DEGRADATION VERY LOW Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton has claimed pole position for the first Russian Grand Prix using the P Zero Yellow soft tyre, nominated along with the P Zero White medium tyre at Sochi. The Englishman set a time of 1m38.513s using the soft tyre in Q3, ahead of his team mate Nico Rosberg. This was the ninth Mercedes one-two in qualifying this season.
HAMILTON FASTEST ON SOFT TYRE AFTER OPENING DAY OF ACTION IN SOCHI GAP OF ABOUT 1.5 SECONDS SO FAR BETWEEN MEDIUM AND SOFT TYRES HIGH DEGREE OF TRACK EVOLUTION ON BRAND NEW RUSSIAN CIRCUIT The latest track to join the Formula One calendar had its debut day of action with free practice for the inaugural Russian Grand Prix, where Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton set fastest time on the P Zero Yellow soft tyre: 1m39.630s in FP2. There is a performance gap of about 1.5 seconds so far between the soft and the P Zero White medium tyre, which has also been nominated for Russia.
PIRELLI COMPLETES 2014 FORMULA ONE COMPOUND CHOICES Milan, October 8, 2014 – The tyre choices for this season are now complete, with Pirelli having announced the compounds that will be used for the final three grands prix of the year, in the United States, Brazil and Abu Dhabi. For the Circuit of the Americas, the P Zero White medium and P Zero Yellow soft tyres will be nominated. This has been the most frequent nomination this year, and is well suited to circuits with a wide-ranging series of demands, such as Austin with its combination of fast corners and more technical sections.

2014 Japanese Grand Prix – Race HAMILTON WINS IN JAPAN USING CINTURATO WET AND INTERMEDIATE TYRES TO EXTEND CHAMPIONSHIP LEAD RAINY CONDITIONS MEAN THAT HARD AND MEDIUM TYRES ARE NOT USED PIRELLI’S THOUGHTS ARE WITH JULES BIANCHI AND MARUSSIA Suzuka, October 5, 2014 – Lewis Hamilton won a prematurely-ended Japanese Grand Prix to extend his championship lead, using the Cinturato Blue wet tyres and Cinturato Green intermediate. The rainy conditions, as a result of the Phanfone typhoon, meant that the hard and medium slick tyres nominated for the weekend were not used at all.
ROSBERG ON POLE USING MEDIUM TYRE: BOTH MERCEDES ABLE TO SAVE TYRES IN Q2 AND KEEP A NEW SET FOR THE RACE WARM WEATHER CONTINUES IN QUALIFYING AT SUZUKA TWO PIT STOPS IS THE QUICKEST STRATEGY IF THE RACE REMAINS DRY: TYPHOON PHANFONE IS STILL A THREAT For the eighth time this year, there is an all-Mercedes front row, with Nico Rosberg leading Lewis Hamilton. Both drivers used tyre strategy during qualifying, being the only people able to complete just one run in Q2 on medium tyres, nominated together with the hard tyre this weekend. As a result, Rosberg and Hamilton are the only drivers in the top 10 to have a new set of medium tyres for the race.
HAMILTON FASTEST FOR MERCEDES ON P ZERO WHITE MEDIUM TYRE LESS THAN A SECOND SEPARATES THE HARD AND MEDIUM COMPOUNDS UNCERTAINTY OVER THE WEATHER FOR THE REST OF THE WEEKEND Weather conditions in Suzuka this weekend seem set to be full of contrasts, with temperatures during free practice today as hot as a European summer, peaking at 29 degrees centigrade ambient and 41 degrees on track, amid the possibility of torrential rain later if a nearby typhoon affects the region. By the end of FP2, there were already some drops of rain on the track.
THE TWO HARDEST TYRES IN THE RANGE BACK IN ACTION IN JAPAN CORNERS SUCH AS 130R AND SPOON PROVIDE SOME OF THE HIGHEST LATERAL ENERGY LOADS OF THE YEAR COOL WEATHER EXPECTED WITH THE POSSIBILITY OF RAIN AT ONE OF THE MOST DEMANDING TRACKS ON THE CALENDAR Formula One’s late-season long-haul run of events now takes the teams to the epic Suzuka circuit in Japan, where the two hardest tyres in the range will be in action: the P Zero Orange hard and P Zero White medium, the same combination as was last seen in Monza. While the two circuits are very different in character, Suzuka does have some elements in common with Spa: another well-known driver’s circuit with flowing corners but even higher lateral energy demands.

2014 Singapore Grand Prix – Race  MIXTURE OF TYRE STRATEGIES AT LONGEST GRAND PRIX OF THE YEAR  HAMILTON WINS FROM POLE TO CLAIM CHAMPIONSHIP LEAD: 100% SAFETY CAR RECORD MAINTAINED, WITH EFFECT ON TYRE STRATEGY  RED BULL USES TWO-STOPS TO PLACE BOTH CARS ON THE PODIUM Singapore, September 21, 2014 – Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton made the most of a three-stop strategy to win Singapore and claim the lead of the world championship. He did three opening stints on the P Zero Red supersoft before completing the race, which ran to the two-hour time limit rather than the scheduled 61 laps, on the P Zero Yellow soft.
 2014 Singapore Grand Prix – Qualifying TYRE STRATEGY EVIDENT FROM START OF QUALIFYING AS ALL DRIVERS USE SUPERSOFT IN Q1 HAMILTON ON POLE AFTER CLOSEST QUALIFYING SESSION OF THE YEAR  THREE PIT STOPS EXPECTED TO BE FASTEST RACE STRATEGY, WITH 100% HISTORICAL PROBABILITY OF A SAFETY CAR Singapore, September 20, 2014 – With first and second on the grid in Singapore thanks to Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg, Mercedes has claimed its seventh monopoly of the front-row this season – but tyre strategy will be extremely important for the race tomorrow. It was the closest qualifying session of the year, with Hamilton clinching pole from his team mate by just seven-thousandths of a second, using the P Zero Red supersoft tyre.
 2014 Singapore Grand Prix – Practice Sessions  AROUND 2.5 SECONDS BETWEEN THE SUPERSOFT AND SOFT COMPOUNDS THREE PIT STOPS EXPECTED FOR THE CIRCUIT WITH THE MOST CORNERS OF THE YEAR  STRATEGY WILL BE VITAL IN A RACE EXPECTED TO LAST FOR THE FULL TWO HOURS Singapore, September 19, 2014 – With 23 corners, Singapore is the track with the most twists and turns of the year, and the same is likely to be true when it comes to the story of the race. Although the grand prix is held at night, ambient temperatures and in particular humidity is extremely high, as was the case during free practice this evening. Along with little run-off space, this ensures that Singapore is one of the most unpredictable races of the year.

PIRELLI TYRES EXPERIENCE HIGH-SPEED EXTREMES IN MONZA Milan, September 12 – At last weekend’s Italian Grand Prix in Monza, Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo – the winner of three grands prix this year – reached 362.1 kph (while slipstreaming) on the main straight: the highest top speed that will be clocked in 2014. At the speed Ricciardo recorded, the wheel is rotating around 2800 times every minute, or just under 50 times every second.  These extreme speeds have a profound effect on the tyres.
ONE-STOP STRATEGY FOR ALL BUT ONE OF THE FINISHERS: EXTREMELY LOW DEGRADATION DESPITE HIGH TOP SPEEDS AND WARM TEMPERATURES HAMILTON WINS ITALIAN GRAND PRIX FOR THE SECOND TIME WITH PIRELLI KVYAT USES DIFFERENT STRATEGY TO NEARLY CLAIM POINTS FINISH FROM THE BACK OF THE GRID Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton has won in Monza, Pirelli’s home race held half an hour’s drive from the company’s HQ in Milan. Hamilton won the race with a one-stop strategy, starting on the P Zero White medium tyre and then switching to the P Zero Orange hard tyre for the rest of the race. He is now seventh in the all-time list of grand prix winners, surpassing fellow Briton Sir Jackie Stewart
HAMILTON ON POLE USING P ZERO WHITE MEDIUM TYRES: SPEEDS IN EXCESS OF 350KPH ONE PIT STOP EXPECTED IN A SPRINT RACE TOMORROW WITH LOW WEAR AND DEGRADATION Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton has claimed pole position at Monza with a time of 1m24.109s, set on the medium tyre, which is nominated together with the hard tyre this weekend. Hamilton’s time was less than half a second off last year’s pole time of 1m23.755s, underlining the pace of development this season.
 JUST ONE PIT STOP EXPECTED FOR THE FASTEST TRACK OF THE YEAR  LOW WEAR AND DEGRADATION ON THE HARD AND MEDIUM TYRES DIFFERENCE OF 0.6 SECONDS BETWEEN THE TWO COMPOUNDS Monza features the highest top speeds and lowest downforce settings of the year, but despite this challenging environment, just one pit stop is expected on Sunday for Pirelli’s home race. Wear and degradation levels have been low on both compounds during the first two free practice sessions and are expected to get even lower as the weekend goes on and more rubber gets laid onto the track.

It has significant lateral energy demands, thanks to its famous fast corners such as Parabolica, and also big longitudinal demands in terms of traction and braking, because of the long straights followed by slow chicanes. For this reason, Pirelli is bringing the two hardest tyres in the range: P Zero Orange hard and P Zero White medium
