2022 tyres should be compromise says Isola

Formula 1 is drafting a so-called ‘target letter’ to give Pirelli direction on the tyres the sport requires for the new rules era from 2022. “We asked Pirelli to do things that weren’t feasible,” he admitted to Auto Motor und Sport. Indeed, drivers including Lewis Hamilton have been highly critical of Pirelli’s current tyres, arguing that the drivers want to be able to push harder. But Tombazis said the 2016 letter asked for that, but also that the tyres should degrade so that more than one-stop strategies would be possible. “We set a goal that you couldn’t hit,” Tombazis added. “If it was up to only us, we would certainly build the tyre that makes the drivers happy.
