Pirelli working on expanded operating window for 2020 tyres. =D>
Pirelli wrote: What we are doing for next season is to redesign the construction in order to modify the footprint, and this is mainly to reduce overheating, and to design new compounds with new ingredients we are exploring new directions in order to have a wider working range.

We have been working with some indoor tests to understand how to identify and measure the working range properly because the working range is affected by a lot of different elements.

If you measure the working range of the same tyres and same compound on track, on two different cars, or two different tracks with different asphalt, it is different because it is affected by a lot of different parameters.

So to identify the working range, we need an indoor test that is repeatable. And this is giving us the opportunity to compare compounds and to understand if we are going in the right direction to have a wider working range or not.

That is not easy. It is easy to explain now, but for our colleagues to do that is not easy.

You are trying to discover confidential information that I cannot really say. It is quite an important achievement and it was a hard job for the people there. We would like to protect it and not give our competitors the information. But it is something that is a new system, a new process. It was a way of finding a new methodology.

Pirelli have been making these false promises and claims for years. Don't believe the hype. The have been promising wider working ranges since at least 2014.

The 2019 tires are the best they have provided since reentering F1, but don't hold your breath for them to be much better in 2020, it could bring back the blistering and chunking (and thus extreme tire conservation) of 2018.

Anyone could explain in details how they model tyre degradation into lap time deficit, and how they adjust it taking datas from other cars in live ?
I would assume it's much more sophisticated than just a linear function ...
