Pirelli Applauds the ‘Unpredictability’ of New Qualifying Format Following Successful First Trial – What’s Changed?

The unpredictability was attributed to the drivers’ limited time to adapt to the new tyre compounds between sessions. Isola explained that drivers had to switch from one compound to another in the three phases of qualifying, something they were not accustomed to since the rule requiring them to start the race on the same set of tyres used in Q2 was abolished.
