Pirelli: “We went in the wrong direction and we need a different approach” | 2019 F1 season

Recent races have shown Formula 1 should continue to move away from high degradation tyres, according to Pirelli motorsport director Mario Isola.
“Last year we went a lot softer,” explained Mario Isola.
Pirelli has brought harder rubber for some races this year and Isola says he is encouraged by how it has performed.
Pirelli: “And we went with hard compounds and we had a good race with drivers that can push until the last lap.”
Pirelli: “That’s why for the future we are receiving the request to go and to develop low-degradation tyres, not high degradation tyres.”
