The Formula 1 teams are having talks with Pirelli regarding the supply of the 13-inch tires for the foreseeable future.
F1 is making a switch to the 18-inch tires in 2022, which means that the old tire specification will not be used for racing anymore. However, it will still be needed.
The teams are using their old cars frequently for private testing sessions and demonstration runs, which means that they need the 13-inch tires.
According to RacingNews365.com, the teams are discussing the possibility of the tire supply with Pirelli. More than that, Pirelli confirmed that they would make the tires on the teams’ requests.
