Europe Saturday quotes: Bridgestone

Hirohide Hamashima - Bridgestone Director of Motorsport Tyre Development

What was significant about today's running?

"Today the track condition continued to improve and we saw a new record set for pole position. The morning session did not point to a clear pace advantage between the two tyres, with the super soft offering more grip but less rear stability than the medium. The cooler temperatures this morning and the rapid track improvement made it difficult to analyse the data so qualifying was interesting for different approaches in use of the super soft or medium compounds."

What are the tyre strategy considerations for tomorrow's race?

"Tomorrow has potential to be quite interesting as the super soft appears to give quite good durability here, which offers the possibility for longer stints from this tyre than we have seen in many races, and certainly greater durability than we saw in Montreal. As overtaking has been difficult here in the past, track position and the timing of the pit stops will be crucial."
