F1 » Vettel defends Ferrari after Pirelli ‘risk’ claim


Goldie, I appreciate your respect re my opinion/s on this forum, as far as it concerns me you don’t have to worry about proper expressions and English, you are certainly better than I am at it, the important thing is we do understand each other as best we could. Yes the purpose of a forum is for expressing one’s opinion, and to agree or disagree with opinions expressed by others, and as far as I know that is what takes place on here. Goldie, you are not new on here, and so you should know that I consider anonymous agrees/disagrees (use of the buttons) only as BALL LESS behaviour. Re the"Pirelli gate" and your suggestion of "listening to the explanation of your friend" I will appreciate you guide me to your friend so that I can listen to his opinion.

F1 » Vettel defends Ferrari after Pirelli ‘risk’ claim


After what Rosberg told the media after the race as regards the safety of the tyres, having suffered a colossal tyre blow-out himself, “The tyres must not explode like that, the next race is Monza, the fastest track of the season, we have to have safer tyres” Lauda kicked Rosberg’s as into line with Mercedes interests relegating his drivers safety interests to the trash bin, by siding with Pirelli, Lauda “You cant discriminate a partner like Sebastian has done, if one of my drivers had done that, I’d taken him aside to make clear that we all work together, we are one team that includes Pirelli” and pronto right after that and notwithstanding the tyre blow-out he suffered and what he said, Rosberg made a U-TURN and his trust in Pirelli had suddenly been restored “I am sure Pirelli will have checked everything thoroughly and we will have a safe race at Monza”. Here is a crystal clear difference if ever there was one of how FERRARI and Mercedes are managed and the way they operate.

F1 » Vettel defends Ferrari after Pirelli ‘risk’ claim


Nico Rosberg suffered the same tyre failure with the same tyre compound as Vettel, but with a difference, Nico’s tyre failed with much less laps. After that tyre failure prime settings of Nico’s WO6 were taken out of his hands and his likings, in preparation for qualifying and race, suspension parts were changed, as were settings such as camber to well whitin Pirelli’s recommendations, and from that moment onwards Nico’s race was compromised. Rosberg after the race “The tyres must not explode like that, the next race is Monza, the fastest track of the season, we have to have safer tyres”. And pronto came out Lauda kicking his own driver’s ass while jumping to Pirelli’s side, the real reason being that it is in Mercedes interests to have the 50/30% limit that Pirelli wants because it prevents daring strategies to beat Mercedes.

George Zaidan: ProfessorX: no manufacturing company will claim a product will do something it wouldn't without facing liability issues. It is Pirelli responsibility to put their product under all sorts of stresses to deem them feasible for racing. They have all the right to guarantee them for only 10 laps if that is what they feel it will only last.
George, not to mention that such a critical item like a tyre will be declared safe to use for xxx number of laps "less the standard and obligatory safety factor.

Formula one tyres like all other tyres are manufactured to a given specification, load/speed/distance/conditions, and as is standard the declared specification comes with a safety factor at that. When Pirelli said 40 laps for the medium tyre they were talking in SPA and about the SPA race and not qualification or anything else. In my opinion one tyre supplier is the best way for formula one.

F1 » FIA to study closed-cockpit concepts


I am first and foremost all for “safety first” but I am sorry to say when and if closed cockpits will be introduced in Formula one cars the term Formula one racing will be no more, it will have to change. As to protective screens of sorts, that is a different matter, protective screens were common in open cockpit Grand Prix racing.
