No qualifying tyres for 2012 season

Despite Pirelli’s F1 boss Paul Hembery revealing last month that fast and sticky ‘qualifying tyres’ were amongst one of the ideas currently being investigated for Formula One, it has been confirmed that they will not come into play in the 2012 F1 season.

“In the end for something like that the decision is with the teams. They might say no,” Hembery said in August.

Asked by a Twitter follower on Thursday if the proposal was given the green light, Hembery said: “Not for 2012.”
