Tyres to keep green stripes in 2010

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

Bridgestone will continue its policy of using a green stripe to differentiate between its soft and hard tyre compounds during the 2010 season.

Chief engineer at Bridgestone Motorsport Jun Matsuzaki said: “We continue to support the FIA?s Make Cars Green campaign so the green stripe will remain.”

He also confirmed that Bridgestone will introduce new tyre constructions and compounds this year:

All compounds have changed from last year based on the feedback and data we gained last season as well as the rule changes for this season. The tyres are designed to be more durable for this season due to the heavier cars and different strategy options because of no more refuelling.

Bridgestone will leave F1 at the end of 2010.
