The extra change F1 should make for 2019
Formula 1's future tyre regulations were a major talking point at the German Grand Prix, and rubber calls also featured heavily in the outcome of the race. But could a proposed ban on tyre warmers improve the spectacle, and should it be introduced as soon as 2019?
Ahead of the German Grand Prix, the FIA quietly issued its tyre tender document for the 2020-2024 season, with a ban on tyre blankets, narrower front wheels and low-profile tyres set out as Formula 1's future. It could spice up the show, but arguably the changes could be brought in even earlier.
Through the years, the demands on what the tyres need to withstand has changed dramatically. Since Pirelli became sole supplier in 2011, it has been under tremendous scrutiny - particularly after the tyre failures at Silverstone in '13. But all the way through drivers have complained about not being able to push as hard as they want to because temperatures are so critical to tyre management.
