The Continental PremiumContact 7 is a new summer tyre that has recently won a summer test, making it a top contender for drivers in need of a premium tyre.
''Once again Continental have dropped a new tyre to the market, and seriously moved the game on, most noticeably in the wet. Last year it was the SportContact 7, this year it's the PremiumContact 7.
This tyre had a huge lead in wet braking, was joint fastest around wet handling, and had the fastest wet circle lap. Thankfully, it also kept most of the dry handling character I loved of the PremiumContact 6 and was excellent on the brakes. It wasn't a flawless run, it was pretty average in aquaplaning resistance, external noise and rolling resistance, but the lead it had in the grip categories led it to a dominating win. Yes, it is the newest tyre, and yes, based on this test, its also the best.''
Red Bull continued their 2023 winning ways, with another 1-2 finish in the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, but it was Sergio Perez, not Max Verstappen, taking the winner's trophy at the Jeddah Corniche Circuit.
