Pirelli can only raise pressures to cope with Zandvoort F1 banking

Pirelli says it will have no choice but to increase its tyre pressures for Formula 1’s Dutch Grand Prix in 2020 to cope with Zandvoort’s 18-degree banked final corner.
Pirelli’s head of car racing Mario Isola said his company knows the challenges the banked corner will present, but added there was a limit to what it could do to mitigate the risk of problems because a different tyre specification cannot be designed specifically for the Dutch GP.
Pirelli has obtained data from Zandvoort about the planned changes to the circuit, and has already run simulations to predict what extra stresses the banking will bring.
