He has already made clear that, depending on the sport's desire to keep racing with the Italian-made tyres, Pirelli wants to extend its tenure as the official F1 supplier beyond its expiring 2013 contract.

"Maximising the investments in terms of profitability will require a medium-term commitment," Hembery is quoted by journalist Peter Hesseler in the German-language Speed Week.

He answered "eight to ten years" when asked what his definition of medium-term is.
