Turkey Sunday quotes: Pirelli
Paul Hembery: "We obviously develop tyres that have to suit 20 different circuits this year, and the demands of Turn Eight in particular mean that Istanbul Park is definitely at the upper limit of what we are working with in terms of tyre wear. So we're pleased that the tyres stood up to the challenge so well, giving the teams plenty of scope to utilise different strategies. "We actually thought that Vettel could have won the race with three stops, but the comparatively short pit lane layout here in Istanbul meant that the performance advantage of an extra stop outweighed the 20 seconds or so spent in the pit lane.
