Pirelli: Formula 1 drivers welcome new tyre supply contract

Formula 1 drivers have welcomed a new tyre supply contract for Pirelli as a chance to make the tyres more raceable.
Grand Prix Drivers’ Association (GPDA) chairman Alexander Wurz told BBC Sport: “Now we know Pirelli will remain as our partner, I welcome their efforts to co-operate more intensely with the drivers to tune their product for higher track performance.”
Pirelli has been trying to produce such tyres, but earlier this year their motorsport boss Mario Isola said it was a challenge in the context of a parallel request from F1 for softer tyres that the sport’s bosses hoped would lead to more pit stops.
