Yellow kerbs are dangerous – Hamilton

Pole sitter Lewis Hamilton believes that, the FIA needs to address the “dangerous” kerbs which have triggered a series of suspension failures ahead of the Austrian Grand Prix.

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen broke his car’s suspension in Friday’s practice; Nico Rosberg added his name to the list on Saturday and was followed by Toro Rosso’s Daniil Kvyat and Force India’s Sergio Perez in qualifying.

Kvyat’s incident could have been the most horrific, with the Russian fortunate not to smash into the pit lane wall after his car skewed out of control in the first phase of qualifying.

“For me, looking at it, those yellow kerbs are quite dangerous,” said Hamilton.

“We’ve now seen a couple of incidents already. I don’t know how many more of those it’s going to take before a car ends up in the wall and someone gets hurt.”

“The idea is good because they don’t want us running wide, and using the outside of the circuit, but perhaps another solution is needed.”
