Formula 1’s official tyre supplier Pirelli has proposed introducing a third type of tyre for use in rainy conditions.
In the round-up: Verstappen picks Miami as best drive of 2023 so far • Armstrong: Results reflect performance in IndyCar more than F2 • Pirelli conclude F1 tyre test
In the round-up: Ferrari and Mercedes begin key 2024 tyre test • Scoring points harder in 2023 – Alfa Romeo • No replacement for cancelled F2 and F3 races
In the round-up: Rain disrupts F1 preparations at Imola and washes out Indianapolis 500 practice • Alpine drivers test Pirelli’s wet weather tyres
F1 has played around with several rules during the first five rounds of 2023, and another change will debut at the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix.
Michelin have dismissed F1’s desire for tyres that “destroy themselves”, but the FIA’s invitation to tender suggests a shift in tyre philosophy may be on the way.
Pirelli has nominated softer tyre compounds for the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix where the new ‘Alternative Tyre Allocation’ will be used for the first time.
Formula 1’s current tyre supplier Pirelli is undecided over whether it will apply to provide tyres over the 2025 to 2027 seasons.
Pirelli’s motorsport director Mario Isola has responded to comments from Lewis Hamilton criticising Formula 1’s plan to outlaw tyre blankets.
In the round-up: Hamilton’s film will show F1 ‘as it should be’ • Pirelli nominate new compound for first race • Next Indy 500 is Kanaan’s last

Max Verstappen’s chief concern with Pirelli’s current Formula 1 tyres is one area the manufacturer plans to improve next year.
Formula 1’s growing schedule is making it harder for Pirelli to arrange in-season tests to develop new tyre compounds.
Have F1’s new tyres for 2022 achieved the goal of making it easier for cars to follow closely? Pirelli motorsport director Mario Isola spoke exclusively to RaceFans.
Pirelli will bring the hardest combination of compounds to Bahrain as they confirmed tyres nominations for the opening three grands prix.
Differences between the kerbs used in Jeddah and Qatar mean the tyre failures seen at the last race are unlikely to occur in the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.
Pirelli has revealed the initial findings of its investigation into the punctures which four drivers suffered during the Qatar Grand Prix 12 days ago.
Lando Norris said the sudden punctures he and other drivers experienced the Qatar Grand Prix were potentially “dangerous” and urged tyre supplier Pirelli to “make the tyres better.”
Pirelli suspect high-speed impacts with kerbs contributed to the tyre failures four drivers experienced in the Qatar Grand Prix.
