In the round-up: Pirelli motorsport director Mario Isola says the new front wing regulations for the 2019 F1 season will show if the sport is heading in the right direction with its attempts to encourage better racing.

What they say

Isola told RaceFans further rules changes could be considered for the 2020 F1 season to encourage more overtaking if the new wings prove to be a change for the better:

Talking to different teams they believe the changes in regulation have a different impact. The target is to reduce downforce, to try to increase the number of overtakes on-track, that is an important part of the show rather than number of pit stops.

So hopefully we are going in the right direction. It is not a huge step compared to 2018 but it’s very useful to understand if we are going in the right direction because if we confirm that for 2020 maybe we can have another step and then the big change will be in 2021.
