Pirelli on Zandvoort: Layout is going to put high demands on the tyres

Pirelli will take the hardest available tyres to the Dutch Grand Prix. The tyre suppliers announced this through their own channels the day after the weekend at Spa-Francorchamps. Mario Isola is looking forward to the next race that will take place at the renovated Zandvoort circuit.

“The Dutch Grand Prix is obviously a new challenge but thanks to the data provided by Formula 1 and the teams, we have been able to come up with a tyre nomination and prescriptions that are closely aligned to what we can expect from this exciting new venue," Isola said in the preview.

The Italian company's top executive expects crowds at the track during Friday's race. "Being a new track, the free practice sessions will also be essential when it comes to gathering real data and formulating the tyre strategy for the race. What's for sure is that the circuit layout is going to place heavy demands on the tyres, as can be seen from the computer simulations that we have already carried out."

Pirelli has run its tyres at Zandvoort before in 2021. Then the GT World Challenge was a guest in the Netherlands.
