New tyres will ignite F1 - Hembery

Pirelli motorsport director Paul Hembery says the Formula 1 tyre supplier will be less "conservative" in 2012 and reveals they hope to provide more excitement during the new season, with "closer racing at the front" high on the agenda.

The Italian company has made each of their four dry-weather tyres softer this season, increasing their rate of degradation and reducing the time they take to warm to their optimum temperature, as well as closing the gap in performance between the compounds themselves.
