Pirelli hope to conduct traffic tests with new 2022 tyres

Mario Isola is keen to simulate real racing scenarios with Pirelli's new tyre construction for the 2022 Formula 1 season.

Pirelli boss Mario Isola is in favour of running realistic Formula 1 race simulations to test whether the new 18-inch tyres are less sensitive to overheating, allowing the drivers to push harder in wheel to wheel combat.

Along with a new set of technical regulations, Pirelli's bigger tyres are certain to play a major role in 2022, with the potential to shake up the pecking order.

"For sure," Pirelli F1 boss Isola told The Race when asked if there would be attempts to simulate running in traffic during the Abu Dhabi test.

"The problem is that we are using the mule cars and the mule cars don't have the final version of the aero package

"I'm not 100 percent sure the mule cars running in traffic are representative of the new cars running in traffic because with a new car you generate slipstream and mule cars in traffic are losing more downforce, so it is not the same situation.

"I believe we have to wait until the first race in 2022 to learn completely about traffic. Also during the test we know that they don't want to stay in traffic because they are not collecting useful data."

Every team apart from Williams have tested the new, bigger tyre construction, with the latest test taking place after the Hungarian Grand Prix. The Abu Dhabi tyre test in December will offer the best opportunity to simulate a race.

Isola hopes the final test will bring up no major surprises to give Pirelli an easier winter ahead of next year.

"I am happy that we have the possibility to test in Abu Dhabi and have two days of testing that are dedicated to tyres," he said.

"We are going to homologate the product by September 1 in terms of construction and just after that the compounds.

"So we are going to Abu Dhabi with a final version of the 2022 tyre and we have the possibility to add mileage on the tyres.

"Hopefully if there is anything we have to fine-tune for 2022, we have a bit of time to react because if we start with the new tyres in pre-season test there is no time to react because some of the tyres that we produce for races are already on the boat to go to China or wherever."
