Pirelli boss says company is on target to deliver more durable and raceable F1 tyres for 2022

He said drivers who had tested the 2022 tyres were “happy” with the result. “The new tyres are definitely better; you can push harder for longer,” he said. He said: “During the tests for the 18-inch tyres, [the drivers] were happy with the result. “The drivers are starting to enjoy the characteristics of the new tyres. Isola said that the lower-profile tyres were providing more satisfying car behaviour for the drivers in way beyond the statutory requirements on Pirelli. And he said that the new tyres had been constructed in a way that should allow Pirelli to run them at lower pressures. Isola said that a definitive judgement on the new tyres would not be possible until the designs run on the new 2022 cars at the start of next year. And he said that changing expectations of the performance of the new cars was adding further complications.
