Formula 1governing body FIA called the Pirelli for find the answer to its tyre failure ahead of a meeting of the Formula One’s Sporting Working Group on Wednesday.
At the same time as Pirelli is being pushed to act in the next 48 hours to realize an answer for next week’s German Grand Prix
Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton race leader, Ferrari’s Felipe Massa, Toro Rosso’s Jean-Eric Vergne of and McLaren’s Sergio Perez all suffered left-rear punctures during the British Grand Prix.
“There have obviously been some issues with rear-left tyre failures which we have not seen before. We are taking the situation very seriously and we are currently investigating all tyres to determine the cause as soon as possible, ahead of the next Grand Prix in Germany.” Pirelli motorsport boss Paul Hembery said.
“At the moment, we can’t really say much more until we have fully investigated and analysed all of these incidents, which is our top priority.
“However, we can exclude that the new bonding process, which we introduced at this race, is at cause for the tyre failures we have seen today.”
“There might be some aspect to this circuit that impacts specifically on the latest version of our 2013 specification tyres but at this point we do not want to speculate but will now put together all the evidence to find out what happened and then take appropriate next steps should these be required.”
