F1 Teams Unanimously Rejects Pirelli 2020 Tyre Spec

Formula 1 teams have unanimously rejected the 2020 tyre proposed by supplier Pirelli for the upcoming season. Pirelli have been busy evaluating a prototype tyre, most recently at the Abu Dhabi post-season test, but following analysis of the result, teams have voted to stick with the current specification.

Teams were given the new compounds to run in the first practice at the United States Grand Prix earlier this year, before running in Abu Dhabi this month. After the test, Pirelli said they were left with “mixed” results from the teams.

A vote was held, requiring at least 70 per cent of competing teams to agree to reject the new 2020 tyres and retain the status quo as per Article 12.6.1 of the FIA’s Technical Regulations.

“The vote resulted in a unanimous decision to keep the 2019 specification tyres for the 2020 season by the Formula 1 teams,” said the FIA in a statement.

“The FIA would like to thank both Pirelli and all the teams for their work and collaboration to improve the tyres for the 2020 season and beyond. In any case, the lessons learnt will be invaluable for the further improvement of the tyres in the future.”
