A couple of days after the GP weekend at Imola Circuit, Pirelli did a two-days test session to further develop their 18-inch tyres which will be introduced in 2022 with the upcoming new technical rules. Mercedes-AMG was the team chosed for this test (the 4th out of 10 test sessions, totalling 28 days, planned for 2021) and the victorious W10 EQ Power+ from 2019 was made available for this purpose. Of course the car was slightly modified to host the bigger sized wheels and featuring the 2021 livery of the W12 E Performance due to sponsors’ contracts.

Honestly I wasn’t bother to see them mounted on a current car, they didn’t even seem that much oversized for this car’s design. Maybe it was just because of the wheel’s black colour which camouflages them a bit even if their dimensions and total heights are different compared to current tyres. Anyway remember that the new 18-inch tyres will be suitable for a total different car design.

Enjoy this video from the first day with Lewis Hamilton behind the wheel!

Mono says:

I really REALLY like those new wheels

Onkar Indurkar says:

Those brakes look tiny in such huge wheels & they are going to keep same size brakes(11" rotors i think) what a joke
And because of this the new 18" tires & wheels won't get their required heat from brakes like they used to when they were 13" so even worse performance

Is that a race car or a vacuum sweeper? So embarrassing….. Bring back the NA V8’s, V10’s, & V12’s!!! Oh yeah, make them take fuel, have real Pitt-stops, and make this sport interesting again…

Stefan Rose says:

the visuals and audio of this video are better than anything FOM puts out

Agus Pramono says:

Alme D. says:

MKI4EVA says:

Clément Feuillet says:

Tracks limits is still a thing here!

John Barta says:

As an F1 fan, I've gotta ask. Will all of the teams get to test the new setup, or will Mercedes be starting next season with an advantage again?

Rodolphe Ndessabeka says:

Look at the way this W10 handles corners. It's incredible.
