1986 Mexican GP F1 win for Pirelli tyres (Berger, Benetton-BMW)
Pirelli will return to F1 next season for the first time since 1991. The Milan-based firm will supply all the Formula One teams from 2011-2013 with six types of tyre: four for dry weather, one for rain and one intermediate tyre. Pirelli – which has supplied tyres exclusively for the GP3 championship this year – will also supply the GP2 championship from 2011, becoming the sole provider of tyres for the most prestigious single-seater championships in global motorsport.
Here is the full text of Pirelli press release on F1 and GP2:
After the exciting Canadian GP the season continues with European GP in Valencia, the venue that is yet to offer exciting race. Who knows, maybe this year … No matter what the prediction game continues, it is time for round 9 of our prediction game.
Pirelli - last seen in F1 in 1991
As expected Pirelli will become F1 sole tyre supplier from 2011 season for period of three years. This is one of decisions The World Motor Sport Council meeting that took place today in Geneva. The WMSC also decided that the 107% qualifying rule will return from next season. That means that from 2011, any driver whose best qualifying lap exceeds 107% of the fastest Q1 qualifying time will not be allowed to take part in the race.
FIA also made some decisions that come to effect immediately following recent safety car incident (Schumacher Alonso in Monaco) and Hamilton’s running out fuel at the end of qualifying in Canada. With immediate effect, if a sample of fuel is required after a practice session the car concerned must have first been driven back to the pits under its own power. If the safety car is still deployed at the beginning of the last lap, or is deployed during the last lap, it will enter the pit lane at the end of the lap and the cars will take the chequered flag as normal without overtaking.
Here are the decisions taken by The World Motor Sport Council today in Geneva in full:
Here are the results of Canadian GP round of our prediction game. There was one correct prediction for both fastest lap and pole position (sainzf), one prediction had drivers from all 7 teams in the points (Alex’). The highest scores of round 8 however belong to leveller and OliOlifant – 23 points !

One of the most exciting races on the calendar – Canadian GP – is back after one year absence ! It is time for round 8 of our prediction game.
We had a rather rare opportunity to see team mates battle it out last weekend in Turkey – Vettel attacking Webber, Button pulling a move on Hamilton. I believe that for majority of the viewers these overtaking attempts were not exactly expected. We became used to the fact that once the race settles the team mates keep the status-quo. Alonso following slower Massa in Australia earlier this season is one example.
