In-season test: Silverstone, United Kingdom, July 12-13, 2016

“At the second and final in-season test of the season, the teams were free to choose whichever tyres best suited their testing programmes – and we saw the entire range from full wet to ultrasoft being used at some point during the two days. Despite the rain that dominated the opening afternoon, the teams completed plenty of laps and were able to give a number of young drivers some useful experience. We were also able to get some data about potential 2017 compounds and constructions within a 2016 tyre size, thanks to a programme carried out by Pascal Wehrlein in a 2014 Mercedes W05, which was also present at the test. This has given us a number of interesting areas to work on and now we look forward to continuing our test programme next month, using 2017-size tyres for the first time on modified cars.” Paul Hembery, Pirelli motorsport director
