F1 » Pirelli: F1 ignored our request to limit laps

Total bull crap from Pirelli playing with what they said two years ago, what they said before the race and what they are now saying after the race. The facts are that before the race their tyres safety calculations and that as in all safety calculations with a safety factor, were 40 laps. And their wear limit calculations were between 2 and 3 stops would be needed.

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

richard: andrew cree. not quite true. they did not say that the tyres would only last for short period of time. what they said was that timewise , and getting the best out of their tyres without tehm falling off a cliff, then 2-3 stops could be the most advantageous. but they did say that the tyre would last 40 laps, albeit with not-optimum performance. and if you read arrivabenes comments, 2 hours before the start, it was agreed with pirelli that it was good for a one stopper. seb stretched out his option tyres so as to keep well within the pirelli tyre capabilities.
Richard, If Vettel had managed the last one and a half laps (ten KM) of the race he would have went 25% less of what Pirelli claimed as the safe laps for those tyres. You should have told this here CREE that when Pirelli said 2-3 stops they were talking from the point of view of tyre wear and not safety.

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

Pirelli bull crap, same as that of some on here, Some teams apart from FERRARI refuse to believe PIRELLI explanation of excessive tyre wear “If Pirelli tell us the tyres last 40 laps, they can’t possibly blow-up after 28 laps” “ If Vettel’s tyres had been worn out, he would have to came in the pits, as soon as the rubber is worn below 30% the lap times go up by 2 to 3 seconds, tyre and temperatures drops from 140C to 110C And you are like driving on ice, you won’t even get anywhere near critical wear, your team would call you in long before that happens”. Auto motor und sports published a picture of a tyre deforming abnormally on Vettel’s car on Friday. The BBC reports that no less than 3 world champions had voiced their concern about the safety of Pirelli’s tyres in the drivers briefing on Friday. After the race Vettel stalked past Hembery growling at him “your tyres are a catastrophe”. It looks like Pirelli have yet another PR disaster on their hands.

F1 » Pirelli blames Ferrari, dismisses Rosberg incident link

Taipan: I've supported Hembery in the past as at times he's been handed the poisoned chalice and had to make it sound tasty but he's fcuked up here big time. To say publicly that the tyres had a wear life of around 40 laps then blame the team for overusing them after 28 laps when a tyre explodes is a shocking about face.
Taipan, When Pirelli before the race talked about the 40 laps about the tyre in this subject they were talking about the tyre safety calculations and not the wear life.

F1 » Furious Vettel fumes at Pirelli after tyre blow

MrTopHat1: Though Vettel's concerns about the tyres maybe valid, he let himself down with his behaviour. His swearing on live TV was appalling and unprofessional
You have seen or heard nothing yet, wait till you see him practice firing a machinegun.
that wasn't a machine gun, and that didn't even look like it was on burst. I have tapped out quicker shots out of an AK, just gotta get a good feel for the recoil :)
Profs, So you too practice with firearms, even with an AK, I an not in a position to argue with you when it comes to the use of firearms.
