F1 – Gian Carlo Minardi "I expect a compaction performance"

giancarlo_minardi.jpg'Formula 1 has turned on the engines and open dancing. With the first two test sessions on the tracks Spanish in Jerez and Barcelona the teams have begun the long process of weaning of new creatures and just as we write, on the Montmelo track is staged on the third and final act, before you go to Australia .

Along with Gian Carlo Minardi we tried to analyze the first releases to better understand what we might expect from the new world “of Montmelò This is certainly the most important session, which should allow us to capture some more information on 2012, although signals that arrive still indicate a Red Bull ahead of Ferrari, McLaren and Mercedes.

However, this aspect is also related to the behavior of the tires: if there is a strong decay in performance as last season passing slower in the pit lane will not affect the strategy,
