Teams want covid-era tyre rule in 2022 says Isola

Formula 1 teams do not want control over their allocation of tyre compounds at grands prix, according to Pirelli’s F1 chief Mario Isola. A covid-related rule tweak meant Pirelli no longer allowed teams to be more selective about the full selection of compounds available per driver at the races. However, Isola says the teams have told him that they actually prefer when every competitor received an identical allocation, as was the case last season. “But then the teams came to us saying they were satisfied with this system and want to keep it in the future. So it wasn’t our choice to keep it,” Isola insisted.
