New construction caused di Resta tyre failure

"We would have to look at changing some parts of the structure, which is something we can do," he explained to sportinglife.com, "But we would need to balance that with what impact it might have on the teams because they have a lot of data that's based on this year's structure which influences aerodynamics.

"Also there is a lack of testing. Some of the solutions we might need would need some more extensive testing, so we are caught in between a bit of a rock and a hard place.

"But we do take these things seriously. We're looking at it to see if we can change this mode of failure, the visibility of it and turn it into something that is less dramatic from a visual point of view.”
