F1 » Hamilton brands Monza tyre pressure changes a 'disaster'


Hamilton is right, 2 days of practice is not enough to put the tires into its paces. I also don't believe Pirelli when they say debris caused the blowout and their answer is to treat Monza as if it's Spa. Will the debris and conditions be the same? BTW Mark, tire engineers may know about tires but don't get to drive the car to know all the nuances and what a driver feels when he is driving the car. All the driver cares about is that the tires do not explode prematurely and that they can be driven as hard as possible and that they keep up with the car. How did Pirelli simulate real life conditions when they are not allowed to test their tires on track. This whole lack of testing is jeopardizing the F1 and it is going to get even worse in 2016.

ProfessorX: Pirelli are just putting that out there to further mitigate liability if another tire explodes. The whole "we told you so" thing.
Agree, Pirelli should never have agreed to produce tires that deteriorate prematurely. They will be liable if any driver is hurt in producing less than safe tires especially driving in excess of 200mph. The worse thing is that the same tires are going to be used even after what has happened.

F1 » Mercedes uses all tokens for Italian GP upgrade


rob01:
George Zaidan: Just thinking - countries are allowed to buy Green House Gas quotas from each other when they use up all of theirs. Couldn't the same thing be done in the F1 where teams buy tokens from other that do not use theirs?
What tokens do manor,lotus,williams,toro,red bull, FI have to spend?
rob, rob, rob at this point there is probably only one team with tokens left to mothball and that's Mercedes, what I'm saying is that other teams could buy Mercedes' tokens.
