New Pirelli tyre not only due to Baku blowouts says Isola

Mario Isola has played down suggestions Pirelli is introducing a new rear tyre purely because of the Baku blowouts. But the Italian company’s F1 chief Mario Isola actually said Pirelli has been thinking about doing this since last year. “We had this idea last year when we were looking for solutions to develop a more robust rear tyre,” he said at the Red Bull Ring. “With the 2021 tyre, we had already strengthened the construction a step. This new version is another step in that direction,” Isola added. He said the teams and drivers should easily adapt to the new tyre because the weight and aerodynamic profile are the same.
