Paul Hembery says Pirelli will continue to be aggressive with their tyres, however, if teams really want a different approach they are open to discussions.
Pirelli came in for some stick in the wake of the Bahrain Grand Prix as drivers suffered high degradation, prompting Michael Schumacher to liken it to driving on "raw eggs."
This opened the debate with F1 personalities and fans alike divided on the matter.
And although Pirelli's motorsport boss says they are willing to tone it down if that is what teams want, he believes the teams will adjust to the rubber as the season progresses.
"We work on the input from the teams, so if the teams want us to take a different approach we can go back to an approach which is probably more akin to what you'd be doing in a tyre competition," he said in Friday's press conference.
"You could push harder with very minimal degradation. You then started getting into areas of tyre integrity because you start pushing the boundaries of performance of the tyre but it depends on what the challenge is.
"We'll do whatever the sport wants us to do and at the moment, I think if you're looking from the outside, at the start of the season of course the tyres are very important, but as I mentioned earlier on, that's the teams getting used to what would be for them, maybe changes to the car, slightly different change from ourselves in terms of challenge.
"As the season progresses you will see that they will master that. They are very good, all these gentlemen around here, very very competent and very amazing teams of engineers working for them.
"If I took the first winter testing when we came back into the sport, you would have thought we would be doing 25 tyre changes for a race. On the same tyre at the end of the season, they were getting probably 25 to thirty laps out of the same tyre.
"Things change and the importance for everybody is that they have the same challenge. The engineers and the teams will find their solutions, and as the gentlemen have said, the drivers can also provide some solutions to that."
As for Schumacher, the seven-time World Champ met with Pirelli in Mugello, however, Hembery was quick to point out that while Schumacher's opinion is valuable it is not the definitive voice.
"Yeah, he had a meeting with some of our engineers - to be honest, it was a little bit more general than just talking about Bahrain, it was trying to understand what we're doing with testing, future development, the way we're going forward and maybe hearing from ourselves of some of the constraints we have.
"Michael's obviously a great Champion, he's been the most successful Formula One driver so of course we listen to the comments, but we also have lots of comments from other drivers and until they all say the same thing...
"We were given an input when we started our adventure in Formula One and we're still following that, so while we obviously respect it, it's one of a number and we carry on doing our work."
