Pirelli Motorsport principal Mario Isola has refused to rule out the possibility of delaying F1’s planned ban on tire blankets until 2025.
Lewis Hamilton recently criticized the proposal, claiming it would put drivers’ lives in danger.
“It’s a technical challenge, a big technical challenge,” Isola told Speedcafe. “We have to re-engineer the design of the range of vehicles. That is why we have ordered more tire tests this season, to have the opportunity to test on different circuits in different conditions with different asphalt and so on.
“That is why it was decided, after a test in Silverstone, to hold a meeting with all stakeholders to assess the state of development and whether we can achieve the target for 2024.”
