F1 Tyre Decision May be Weeks Away – Pirelli
Pirelli chairman Marco Tronchetti Provera believes confirmation of next year’s Formula One tyre supplier may not be just around the corner. Despite previous remarks from those familiar with the negotiations regarding a likely announcement before the end of May, F1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone reportedly left the Turkish GP in Istanbul “frustrated” about recent delays.
Tronchetti Provera commented that “the decision will be taken soon. It’s a question of weeks, not months.” This seemingly nonchalant tone was not echoed by Ferrari’s Stefano Domenicali, who before leaving Turkey stated “we need to sort this out this week because it is already very, very late for us.”
