Pirelli boss tips Hamilton to keep dominating

The Pirelli boss was speaking in Bahrain, where seven time world champion Lewis Hamilton hit out at the performance of the proposed new tyres for 2021. But Isola said Hamilton’s adjustment to Pirelli’s Formula 1 tyres is actually one of the main secrets of his success in recent years. “Lewis changed his attitude after the championship he lost to Rosberg,” he told Sky Italia. “When we entered F1 in 2011, he was the one who made the tyres degrade the most because he had a very aggressive driving style. And so Isola expects very little about the 2020 pecking order to change ahead of next season.
