F1 cars significantly faster in 2023 says Isola

Pirelli will implement only minor tweaks to its new 18-inch tyre design ahead of the 2023 season. “The new 18-inch tyres met all of our goals,” the Italian supplier’s F1 boss Mario Isola told Auto Motor und Sport. Isola said the main goals will be reducing understeer, adding more grip to the hardest tyre compound, and making the basic construction more robust. “We know that cars will be significantly faster again next year,” he said. One key problem, however, is that an even longer calendar next year will make it difficult for Pirelli to find time for tyre testing. “If the calendar really is 24 races, there are hardly any gaps left for testing with individual teams in between.
