Tyres for the first 4 races confirmed, all C2-C4

2019 tyres will stay for 2020, tyre pressure will increase due to expected increased downforce

C4 eh? ive always found that to be an ironic name for a Pirelli F1-tyre.

Might be an explosive compound that.

Australia and China the same as 2019.

Bahrain a step softer, even though we already had a 2 stop race this year. Nice.

Good news that the 2019 design/construction will be retained for 2020.  Every team voted against adopting the 2020 tires.

Pardon my ignorance, but is this the first time in F1 history that we've had two consecutive seasons on the exact same tyres? Maybe 2009-2010?

I think they need to be a bit more adventurous with the compounds they use anyway–feels like we haven't seen a three-stop race in years...

They will drive slower to prevent a third stop. With tires that fragile, you can't gain an additional pitstop.

Give them an incentive for making three stops, a point for three pit stops like they get for fastest lap. Everyone will be pushing like crazy to get that extra point.

Since we´re stuck with Pirelli.. :rolleyes:

..

Shorten the often quite long Pit Entry´s and Exits would lessen the time on the Pit Speed Limiter. There´s also quite a few tracks that could raise their Pit Speed Limit a little bit too IMO. If done properly, it could give the teams the incentive to race hard(er) at some tracks.

The best incentive for more stops is a shorter pitlane. Pirelli can't control that, all they can do is maybe give a large performance gain on fresh tyres but that will just be seen as severe degradation.

Nevertheless, it is foreseeable that there will be 2020 complaints. Pirelli race director Mario Isola had already announced that they will increase the tire pressure with the old tires and reduce the chamber. "The 2020s cars will have more downforce. We expect the teams to find between one and 1.5 seconds. More downforce means a higher load on the tire. We have to take countermeasures.

I think Pirelli should have gone for softest trio in Melbourne but otherwise early choices are OK.

What a weak statement from Brawn that was. I guess he has to defend his sponsor Pirelli, but it's a huge red flag when a new product is so not wanted by all the teams.

I think Melbourne is generally too hot for the C5, despite all the other indicators leading to a soft tyre being necessary.

Abu Dhabi, Singapore, Montreal and Monaco had C5 this year. At least two of those can get as hot as Melbourne.

 

Pirelli is always cautious early season.
