Pirelli pushing ahead with criticised 2021 tyres

Mario Isola has bad news for Formula 1 drivers – the proposed 2021 tyres are still on track to make their debut next year. After Pirelli’s proposed 2020 tyres were similarly written off by the drivers, the sport’s official supplier agreed to simply stick with the 2019 design this year. He said the Formula 1 drivers are being unrealistic in what they are demanding from Pirelli. “The drivers and teams would have to give me very good reasons,” Isola said when asked if sticking with the 2019 tyres is a possibility. “We are satisfied with the tyres that we have homologated for 2021,” he added. Interestingly, Mercedes boss Toto Wolff does not back Hamilton’s harsh criticism of Pirelli’s 2021 tyres. We have no other choice than a more robust and therefore heavier tyre.”.
