Pirelli: All the numbers from 2014


Last year we faced the biggest challenge that we had experienced since entering the sport, thanks to a completely new generation of cars that featured very different characteristics to before.
This year’s tyres will be evolutions of the 2014 tyres, with just one completely new t yre: the supersoft, which has a fresh rear construction and compound. The 2015 tyre range will be on track at Jerez in just a few days from now, but in the meantime, we hope you enjoy looking back on the classic 2014 season from a tyre point of view.
