Calvin, how can it be Lotus' fault that the tyres are exploding? Sure that situation makes it more complicated, and the FIA's request to make the tyres more fragile certainly has a part in this. But ultimately, the blame has to lie on Pirelli. They've HAD opportunities to test with new cars, perhaps not as many as they would like, but change vetoed of not they should however which way you see it have been able to produce tyres that don't blow up at 200 mph in the first place. And yes, this is very, very serious. I'm thinking the FIA needs to make a statement here. Kick Pirelli out at season's end (I see no viable quick fixes here) and use the hardest compound only for the rest of the season? These types of incidents could very well get someone killed if they continue to happen! Pirelli are not only producing unsafe tyres, they have also been all over the media complaining and trying to put the blame on others. It's the FIA's fault, it's Lotus and Force India... blah blah, cry me a r
