Abu Dhabi Friday quotes: Pirelli

Paul Hembery: "It's too early to draw any detailed conclusions about the experimental soft tyre, but we've gathered plenty of information and already we have seen that it's got some very good speed, comfortably surpassing the times set in free practice last year.

"This new tyre is designed to have a better thermal resistance towards blistering, which should lead to greater durability and a smaller performance gap between the compounds, but with similar pace. Tonight we will begin to analyse some of the data although there is still plenty of work ahead before we have the definitive compounds fixed for next year. In the meantime we're looking forward to the race on Sunday: we've seen today that both Ferrari and especially McLaren have very consistent pace on the soft tyre."
