Pirelli to develop 2024 tyres from scratch

Pirelli will have to develop its Formula 1 tyres for the 2024 season “from scratch”, according to the Italian supplier’s Mario Isola. He says it’s because the sport is gradually phasing out the use of tyre-warming blankets, which will be banned completely from 2024. “The problem is that the cars are so much faster now and they divert a lot of energy into the tyres. “That’s why we have to develop the tyres from scratch.”. But Isola says Pirelli needs actual on-track testing time for the most accurate tyre development. It is believed extra practice time will therefore be allocated for tyre testing at Suzuka and Austin.
