Pirelli: removing tyre blankets bigger change than tyre size | 2019 F1 Season

Pirelli racing manager Mario Isola has said that planned removal of tyre blankets from F1 in 2021 will have a bigger impact than any tyre size change, with only limited learning possible from F2.
Speaking in Canada, Isola confirmed that Pirelli were working to a plan to remove tyre blankets from the sport in 2021.
The tyre manufacturer, who have secured the contract for F1 until 2023, say that removing the blankets be a much bigger challenge to them than the change to 18″ rims.
Formula 2, the junior series intended to most closely feed into F1 and whose tyres are also supplied by Pirelli, already does not use tyre blankets.
