    2011 F1 Season - Pirelli Colour-Coded Tyre Guide

    Very useful article from James Allen's F1 Blog - to recognise which tyres a car is using:

     The whites are too similar to the silvers... I am expecting a lot of confusion at races where the mediums and the hards are going to be used.  Other than that, cool idea!

    I'm not sure this will happen in practice. For example, in Australia, Malaysia & China (where the 2 tyre choices have already been announced), Pirelli will only supply Hard and Soft (i.e. silver and yellow).

    I expect Pirelli will pick 2 tyres that are not adjacent in the above list - probably with a gap of 1 - so that there is enough difference between the compounds - so hopefully, there shouldn't be any risk of confusion.

     In some really tyre consuming tracks, such as Barcelona or Canada, they may be forced to bring the two hardest compounds... We 'll find out I guess.

    Cool idea, really dumb color spectrum. Wet will look like soft/supersoft and hard/medium look the same too.. And why make intermediate blue and wet orange?

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: 2011 F1 Season - Pirelli Colour-Coded Tyre Guide

     

    The couldn't pick another scheme - like vertical dots for instance or stripes? 3 Stripes = Hard, 2 Stripes = Medium, Blue Stripe = Inter, etc.


    Re: 2011 F1 Season - Pirelli Colour-Coded Tyre Guide

    Try distinguishing those stripes when the cars are doing 200+ mph...  The colour coding idea is brilliant. Not sure about some chosen colours though.

    The dots or stripes when spun up on a wheel at speed would form a ring, much like the indicators painted on a helicopter tail rotor or plane propeller to signify that it's in engaged and in motion.

     You really think this is legible?

    I would have preferred a solid coloured line going around the entire sidewall of the tyre. We never had a problem reading the former green lines. Pirelli could have made the tyres this way. Instead, we will have to look out for coloured logos of the brand and model. Spinning at high speed, this is not ideal IMO.

    I don't know - the basic concept has only worked on plane propellers, helicopter rotors, jet turbines, fan blades, tops, yo-yos, pinwheels, and any other number of fast spinning objects for over 100 years now.


    Re: 2011 F1 Season - Pirelli Colour-Coded Tyre Guide

    It will be fine as it is, the lettering will become one lined blur as they drive... BUT they need to rework to coloring...
