Ferrari’s struggles with “quite different” 2019 F1 tyres explained

Ferrari’s Formula 1 performance this season is being hindered by the main challenge of Pirelli’s 2019 tyres being the opposite of last year’s rubber.
Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto said during the Monaco Grand Prix weekend: “The main difference is that last year we had very good warm up with the tyres and we were all focused and concentrating on cooling the tyres as much as we could, to keep them working because the lower the temperature was the better the grip was.
Mattia Binotto: “The tyres of this season are quite different in this respect.”
“You can achieve [heat in the tyres] through braking temperatures and cooling the rims, but also it is downforce no doubt,” said Mattia Binotto.
