Pirelli: Going back to 2018 tyres could be bad for safety and racing | 2019 Austrian Grand Prix

Pirelli motorsport director Mario Isola explained why he did not support moves by some teams to bring back the 2018 tyre specification.
However Isola said dropping the thinner-tread 2019 rubber in favour of the thicker tyres, which were used at all bar three races last year, could have jeopardised safety and made the racing worse.
Mario Isola: “So it was not just a request from Pirelli but the FIA analysed their request and said ‘yes, you are right, the evidence that you provided [is] good so you are authorised to do that’.”
