Mario Isola: Max and Lewis work best with rubber


Success in the race largely depends on the ability to work with tires. The head of Pirelli Motorsport Mario Isola said that Max Verstappen is the best at it.

Mario Isola: “Everyone has their own driving style. But in Formula 1, there are twenty of the best racers in the world – they are all masters of their craft. The car plays an important role in ensuring that the tires withstand a long distance, but a lot depends on the rider, on how he controls the situation. In this regard, Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton are great. However, Charles Leclair is also good at controlling rubber wear.

I was impressed by Max’s performance in Brazil a few years ago – he drove the car superbly on the wet track. The conditions were the same for everyone, but I was struck by Max’s ability to control the car. The Red Bull Racing car may be better suited to rain conditions, but it still performed great! “

Mario Isola also remembered last year’s race at Silverstone, where the Dutchman kept the tires in excellent condition and after a pit stop beat both Mercedes drivers and eventually won the race.

“We brought softer compositions to Silverstone – and Max had a great race,” Isola continued. “Perhaps the Mercedes car puts more stress on the tires, so I cannot say that Hamilton and Bottas performed worse that day.”
