Tyre blanket ban will cause crashes says Verstappen

World champion Max Verstappen is predicting “a lot of crashes” if Formula 1 continues to phase out the use of tyre-warming blankets. “But what I really don’t understand is that if we have the blankets, why don’t we use them completely? “I don’t even want to think about how it’s going to work on a damp day in Monaco. The Dutchman thinks Formula 1 is being naive by thinking that a progressive tyre blanket ban is appropriate. “I don’t think Pirelli, the FIA and Formula 1 really understand how difficult it is to warm up these tyres even when they come out at 70C. “I think everyone has given their feedback, most of the drivers I think weren’t very enthusiastic – at least with these tyres.
