Pirelli to monitor pressures in-race from Monaco

F1 is fast-tracking a system whereby Pirelli and the governing FIA can monitor cars' tyre pressures live during a race.

Last week, we reported rumours some teams may have found a loophole around Pirelli's controversial minimum tyre pressure rules, with trick wheel rims designed to let out pressure whilst the car is running on track.

Now, it emerges that the sport is fast-tracking a solution, with technology to monitor the pressures during the actual sessions ready to be rolled out in Monaco next weekend.

"This is something we were working on for next year," Pirelli Paul Hembery told Britain's Sky in Barcelona. "It's coming a little early now but it's essential from our point of view."
