Two-stop plans rebuffed by Pirelli boss
Pirelli motor racing chief Mario Isola has admitted he's unsure forcing F1 drivers into making two pitstops "is the right solution".
Currently drivers are only mandatorily forced to stop once during a race but there are reports the sport's governing body are keen to bring in two stops from 2020.
However, tyre firm boss Isola admits he's not a fan of the idea.
"There was a lot of talk about imposing two stops by regulation," Isola told Reuters.
"I'm not sure that is the right solution because you have the risk of all the cars stopping on the same lap.
"We want to be a bit more conservative because if we have one stop races anyway, at this point it's much better that we give drivers a bit more consistent tyres and they can push more and maybe we have a better show on track."
Meanwhile, Pirelli have changed their colour-coded range of tyres for the upcoming F1 season and there are now only three variables (soft, medium and hard), as opposed to the previous seven options.
