Teams already recovering lost downforce says Isola

Formula 1 teams have already recovered more than half the downforce loss caused by the tweaked aerodynamic regulations for 2021. The new tyres coped so well with the 2021 cars that Pirelli even agreed to let the teams reduce pressures by 1.5 PSI. Not just that, he also said no special tyres will need to be produced to cope with the banking at Zandvoort. “We will now go into the season with these numbers, but if the teams regain more downforce during the course of the year and the tyre loads increase again, we reserve the right to readjust and increase the minimum pressures again,” said Isola. “If there is a lockdown in Romania and we cannot make the tyres there, we need an alternative factory. We cannot simply stop Formula 1 because there are no tyres.”.
