Pirelli: We feel criticism ‘very unjustified’

Published

Lewis Hamilton suffers a tyre blow out, British Grand PrixPirelli’s Motorsport director Paul Hembery says that lots of criticism faced Pirelli throughout the first half of the 2013 season and it’s “very unjustified”.

Early period of this season some teams and drivers struggled with Pirelli’s heavy degradation. Especially British Grand Prix showed dramatic race with sequential tyre failure.

Hembery speaking to espnf1 a number of board members at Pirelli had been left unhappy at the treatment the company has received.

“I think for a large part of the season – and let’s take out Silverstone from that – then we feel it’s been very unjustified a lot of the comment and it’s made a lot of people unhappy,” Hembery explain during an exclusive interview with ESPNF1.

“People have wanted to use our name and sully our name for their own personal gain and that’s unacceptable. But anybody seems to be able to say anything today in Formula 1, there’s no check and balance, people aren’t looking at the bigger picture and there’s too much self-interest.

“That’s something that people really need to have a good hard look at because there might be a lot of people looking at the way that we’ve been treated and thinking ‘We don’t want a bit of that, imagine us in that situation.’ So you have to be careful, we’re a big company and as I say we want to stay in Formula 1, we’re trying everything we can to do the best job we can but we’ll be around.”
