Timo Glock practices on the softer Pirelli tyres in Monaco

Timo Glock makes his way through the tunnel at Monaco, with plenty of marbles from tyre degradation on display. Pirelli have brought the super-soft and soft compound to the principality, and it's the first time drivers will be using the super-soft rubber.

Team Principal of Virgin Racing, John Booth, spoke after Free Practice on Thursday, and described how the tyres were behaving: "As part of Timo's programme he ran Option tyres very early on, so I'm sure there's a bit more to come from him. Jérôme did a great job again as a rookie round Monaco, which is by no means easy. Both cars completed long runs on the two types of tyre at the end. We seem to be seeing nearly double degradation on the Super Soft than the Soft."
