F1 » Vettel: Tyre criticism purely a matter of safety


Richard, when I said a 'sudden delamination at high speed is dangerous no matter where you are on the track,so change in this characteristic would be better', I meant this as part of the constant ongoing tyre improvements. Pirelli introduced this year's tyres sort of experimentally knowing they would create a greater need for teams to manage them. Pirelli were always for making tyres harder later in the season if the teams wanted it , but first they would see how teams adjusted to then. Early this season Red Bull, were vehemently against these tyres and to a lesser degree Mercedes. Christian and Vettel would say something like racing is not the same any more because they're pushing at just 70%( you yourself have echoed this). And so this tyre delamination anomaly has come as a gift to Red Bull to get tyres changed so facilitating their greater performance on track. Most teams don't want the tyres changed which just goes to show how the safety angle is a side issue, only a facilitator

F1 » Vettel: Tyre criticism purely a matter of safety


Richard, Pirelli's point is that it's the nature of the failure which has changed, and the tyre itself is actually safer than it was last year. I agree the sudden delamination at high speed is dangerous no matter where you are on the track,so change in this characteristic would be better. But Red Bull have not had this problem of sudden delamination at all during the season. They want to be able to do as Vettel's custom is, to drive away into the distance early on and dominate.ie have greater flexibility with there tyre management, which would help Vettel no ends.
