Pirelli to present findings of Vettel Spa blowout at Monza
Pirelli have concluded the investigation into the cause of the blow out suffered by Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel during the Belgian Grand Prix.
Ahead of the Italian tyre manufacturer’s home race Paul Hembery, Pirelli motorsport director revealed, “We have finalised the investigation into Sebastian Vettel’s tyre at Spa. Detailed conclusions from the technical analysis will be presented at Monza.”
Ferrari tried a bold one stop strategy at Spa whereby they would need to do 30 laps on the medium tyres, but 27 laps into the strategy Vettel suffered a blowout, after he exited Eau Rouge flat-out, on the Kemmel straight.
The German raged at Pirelli for apparently misleading the team into believing the tyre could go the distance, and since then a cold war has erupted between the two camps.
