Paul Hembery, the Pirelli motorsport director, is convinced the Italian tyre manufacturer has taken corrective measures, and there will be no repeat of the nearly catastrophic tyre failures that marred last month's British Grand Prix.
Over the course of this weekend's Hungarian Grand Prix, Pirelli will debut its new range of tyres that were given a three-day trial during last week's young-driver test at Silverstone.
For the final 10 rounds of this season's world-title race the tyres will comprise last year's construction with this season's compounds, with the belief they will be considerably safer, and will avoid the issues that saw five rear-tyre blowouts during the race at Silverstone, a rate of failure that alarmed teams and drivers.
"The established performance of the 2012 structure, consolidated with the speed of the current compounds, is set to provide an interesting mix of strategies for the races ahead," Hembery said of the change.
"The teams already have a lot of information about the shape and deformation of this tyre from the previous season. Three days at Silverstone were useful to assess the effect this will have on the 2013 cars, with positive results."
