Pirelli has warned F1 role players that it needs to be granted more testing opportunities ahead of the 2014 campaign.
F1 is set for an early start next year with the first pre-season test pencilled in for mid-January, but that has left Pirelli with limited time to test their tyres before teams role out their new cars.
The Italian manufacturer has already scheduled a test with a 2011 McLaren model in November, but they will need a few more tests as their tyres need to come to grips with the V6 turbo engines.
Pirelli motorsport director Paul Hembery urged the F1 community to make sure they get as much mileage under their belts as possible ahead of the first pre-season test.
"We certainly need to do some work - and a lot more compound work," Hembery told Autosport. "We want to change a little bit the philosophy.
"This year was aggressive compound wise, perhaps too aggressive in some instances, and we have to improve the mechanical strength of the compounds to get less marbles and less ripping next year as it will be amplified by the new powerplants."
Pirelli came in for a lot of stick this year not only over their compounds, but also over their decision to conduct secret tests with both Mercedes and Ferrari.
Hembery called on the new Strategy Group to make sure that the same thing doesn't happen in 2014.
"We are trying to clarify right now, with the way this sport is structured going forward, the best way to make sure that we get the correct inputs. And it needs the ability to test - and also make corrections after testing," he said.
"We don't want to be held between individual interests. We want the sport to ask us.
"If the new Strategy Group is going to function, we want them to tell us what they want, and we will follow it.
"And, if changes are to be made, it should be approved by a body like that, that has a mixture of teams, FIA and FOM. That will be the ideal situation, otherwise you end up with lobbying and you fall between the interests of the teams."
