Super soft tyre to spice up more races - Bridgestone

Stephan Heublein

Before departing F1, Bridgestone is considering equipping teams with its 'super soft' compound at more races in 2010.

The compound is credited with spicing up the recent Canadian grand prix by graining and degrading on the track's slippery and smooth surface in cool conditions, thereby opening up a range of pitstop strategies.

And according to a report on Autosprint magazine's Italian-language website, although harder tyres are necessary at Silverstone, the softest compound is tipped to re-appear for the subsequent Hockenheim round.
