F1 can be exciting without tyre war says Pirelli

Pirelli is confident that Formula 1 can be more exciting even without a ‘tyre war’. Earlier this week, well-known former F1 driver and now broadcaster David Coulthard admitted he is no fan of the current Pirelli era, which he says is “super boring” compared to his era of head-to-head tyre maker competition. “I spoke to David,” said Pirelli boss Mario Isola at Baku, “and I have to say that he was not criticising Pirelli. However, Isola says Pirelli has been given a new official “target letter” to guide development of the all-new, 18-inch tyres for the 2022 technical regulations. He says the new brief is for “less overheating, less degradation”.
