This Is How Much Bigger Pirelli’s 2017 F1 Tyres Will Be

Next year Formula One cars will look a hell of a lot different, more old school. That’s thanks to more aero and bigger wings but perhaps the most eye-catching change will be the much large tyres that Pirelli will be producing next year.

The new tyres are a massive 25% wider than the current tyres and both Pascal Wehrlein for Mercedes and Kimi Raikkonen Ferrari have been testing them out at Paul Ricard and Barcelona respectively.

Here’s a look at how the new tyres compare to what we’ve got now.
