Wolfy35, I agree, having heard the same data from multiple sources now. The steel vs Kevlar carcass may have played a role in the severity of the failures, but it seems that under inflation was the primary cause for the failures due to the sidewall flex and curb interface. If the FIA are going to continue to regulate the tires to the degree they now are, perhaps they now need to place a minimum tire pressure regulation on the teams, just as they do for other important measurements. If everyone had been "properly inflated", I strongly suspect these failures would not have occurred.
