Top teams resisting F1 tyre blanket ban

Top teams are resisting a push to see tyre blankets banned in Formula 1. But some teams are arguing that, with orders already placed for tyre blankets in 2022, drivers will struggle to get heat into their rubber without them – especially with the low-profile tyres set to debut in 2022. Auto Motor und Sport, however, claims that it is mainly the big teams arguing to keep the blankets. It is believed a compromise will be discussed at the F1 Commission which would see blankets phased out from 2022 to 2024. Next year, for instance, the allowance of 40 blankets per team would be slashed to 20.
