F1 bosses thrive for more excitement!

F1 bosses have announced they have asked Pirelli to produce a tyre that drivers will be able to push to the limit in 2017. The current tyres degrade too quickly for drivers to be able to race flat out, it has been announced that the FIA have spoken with Pirelli and requested a tyre which will allow drivers to push harder for longer. The main reason behind the demand for faster tyres is because bosses are thriving to make the sport more exciting, the plans for tyre developments are said to increase lap times by as much as five seconds.

F1 have highlighted various issues with the current tyres, the tyres begin to lose performance above a certain temperature and never recover that loss, this results in drivers often racing below the limit in order to manage the tyres in order for them to gain the best race time possible. This is something drivers have never been happy with, however following two 200mph tyre failures at the Belgian Grand Prix they have called for something to be changed.

The FIA plans to provide full information to Pirelli regarding requirements for the tyres performance by the end of March, for now Pirelli has been given introductory information about the performance the cars are expected to have in 2017, work can now begin on an initial tyre design resulting in those all important faster lap times.
