Angry Sebastian Vettel blasted Pirelli for giving “bullshit” reasons


Sebastian Vettel livid following tyre puncture costs him Belgian Grand Prix podium place: ‘It’s bullshit. If that happens earlier, I’m not standing here now… it’s unacceptable.’

Ferrari opted for a risky one-stop strategy on Sunday race as they targeted for points following starting down in eighth on the grid, but Vettel says his medium compounds should have lasted.

The German changing from softs to mediums on lap 14, but his right rear exploded on the penultimate lap just after Eau Rouge.

“Well how many laps was I missing? Not many,” Vettel told the BBC.

“Things like that are not allowed to happen – full stop. If it happens 200 metres earlier I’m not standing here now, I’m with 300 [kph] stuck in Eau Rouge, so I don’t know what else needs to happen.”

Drivers spoke with safety delegate Charlie Whiting following Rosberg’s failure on Friday and asked if he felt they were taken seriously, Vettel replied: “Well, I think it was – but what’s the answer?

“Same as every time: ‘yeah there was a cut, debris, bodywork, the driver went wide’ – bullshit. If Nico tells us that he didn’t go off the track then he didn’t go off the track, same with me I didn’t go out of the track, just out of the blue it explodes and as I said, if this happens earlier – f**k.”
