Pirelli was asked to make wrong kind of tyres – Wolff | 2018 F1 season

Formula 1 should give official tyre supplier Pirelli a new brief to produce rubber which allows drivers to race each other more closely, Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff believes.
Toto Wolff: “But I think in the past years we have simply asked the wrong things from Pirelli by making the compounds softer and softer, trying to trigger degradation and therefore more pit stops.”
“We need robust tyres, which Pirelli is perfectly able to produce,” Toto Wolff said.
Wolff complained some teams has been “opportunistic” in their efforts to persuade Pirelli to make certain decisions regarding their tyres.
