F1 scraps Q2 tyre compound rule for 2022

Formula 1 will scrap the rule requiring the top-10 qualifiers to use their Q2 tyre to start Sunday’s grands prix from 2022. It means the entire field will now have a free compound choice for the start of races, which is good news to the ears of George Russell. “I think it’s for the best to get rid of the rule.”. Also on the table is a plan to reduce the amount of tyres available to teams per weekend. He said the important thing is that the measure doesn’t affect the quality of the racing, with Isola adding: “There are a few ideas we can try out at certain races next year. “I’m fine with the standard format and we’re also quite happy with what we have been doing in these three sprint race weekends,” he said in Brazil.
