F1 » What we learned at the Belgian Grand Prix

We also learned that everyone cares about tires blowing up but it was OK for Vettel to drive around the track with a tire shredding shrapnel all over and that is OK. Yes others have done it as well. They should be required to pull off the track as quick as possible. Nearly every race weekend car parts or tire pieces are left for the Marshalls and track people to run out and collect. Vettel knew his race was over so why let him or anyone else litter the track with that type of debris? His debris could have changed the outcome of the race.

F1 » What we learned at the Belgian Grand Prix

MrTopHat1: Agreed. Very poor form hogging the racing line and hindering those behind.
yes, he should have stopped on the track and brought out a safety car.? get real, no racer gives up. he , like many many others before him, was trying to get around to the pits to replace the wheel and perhaps salvage a point or two.
A high risk that compromises all the other drivers race. And i am only using Vettel due to it being most recent. Many others have done the same. But shedding the carcass on the racing surface should be stopped. He should not stop on the track but find the nearest location dictated by race control and park it.

F1 » Pirelli: F1 ignored our request to limit laps

107SS2009: Regardless of the bull crap Hembery came out with after the race, Vettel's tyres were well within Pirelli's recommended safety life limit by as much as 25 percent less then what Pirelli themselves recommended, plus to that FERRARI like all other teams had a Pirelli engineer/adviser in their garage with them who gave them no warning that they were taking any risk with their strategy.
28 laps was overly optimistic based on any historical evidence with the medium tire. And for sure exceeding track limits by Vettel on 40 percent of his laps was a huge factor. It was a gamble that Ferrari had to take due to the poor weekend they were having.

F1 » Arrivabene: One-stop strategy was always Plan A

Tbone1209: There's a huge difference between operating the tires beyond their performance envelope and losing 3 seconds a lap and having a catastrophic failure. The tires should have a zone where they simply don't provide traction, hence making it a disadvantage to go into that zone. These tires gave no indication they were beyond their performance envelope. This could have been a catastrophie if it would have happened 250 meters earlier. Does someone have to end up like poor Bianchi before they realize something base to be done regarding these **** tires? The cars were 3-6 seconds faster in 2005 and we never saw tire failures like this (well, except for Indy).
Lewis ,nico,Grosjean and Kvyat all ran faster than anyone over the last 5 years at that track. They were the top 4 of this year's event.
