The tyre has been punctured deliberately
F1 Asymmetric "3" is simply the name of the tyre type made by Goodyear. Not 1, 2, 4 or 5.
Here is an example of a Michelin tyre, Pilot Sport PS4, PS4S or a PS5, they are all completely different.
You don't actually need to match with the opposite side. But rather daft if you don't. Odd tyre/different tread is not advised. So if only one side needs replacing, then matching them makes a lot of sense. Just ask your tyre dealer to get like for like. Simple.
You could of course go for a different brand or tyre type but here I recommend you replace your tyres as an axle set. ie replace two of the correct size, same brand and type.

I had optional 19” wheels on my 2020 ST Line X and that came with Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 3
Really? The asymmetric 3 is an old tyre, especially for 2020. Was superseded by the 5 and now the 6 which imho is the brilliant tyre.

Anyone put All Season tyres on?
Just wondering if the stiffer tyre walls would affect handling or noise levels?
I wasn’t impressed with the grip of the standard fitted tyres during the winter and sometimes on pulling away on wet roads it’s a bit iffy on grip

Everyone SHOULD put All Season tyres on. TBH it's a disgrace that in this country it's not mandated by law.
Our winters are cold enough that everywhere in the country there are temps below 5 deg when summer tyres lose efficiency, and just about everywhere will see some ice or snow each winter.
So unless you are committed to NEVER taking your car out when there is any chance of there being white stuff then you should not be running summer tyres.

People die every year because of running summer tyres in the wrong conditions.

Oh dear...Thought we had done with this.....Once again, not seen any snow this year and maybe two days (if that) below 5C. Not had any grip problems anywhere including 3 500 milers. Not seen any cars skidding off the roads or seen any reports of accidents due to cold weather conditions.
My tyres have served me well in the many prevailing rain storms I've had to drive through.
The evangelistic approach that every car everywhere in the UK must endure the extra expense of having two sets of tyres when they are not needed is ridiculous.
Each should make their own judgment dependent on the conditions where they live.
I'm not telling you that you shouldn't use them so I don't need telling I should, thanks.
