    Never seen owt like it!! Carnage.

    What can they do though – leave them out and another one goes and someone gets hurt not good.

    Stopping the race – not good.

    Rock / hard place for Charlie et al.

    I’d imagine the front wheel would be affected too.

    Is there not more stress on the rear tyres?

    Indeed. And at least there was more than one tyre so some people could race.

    Reprofiled kerbs apparently, and talk that the inside face isn’t as well finished as the rest so cutting kerbs too much possibly runs tyre over exposed aggregate. Sure there will be some forensic examination after the race.

    Another lap and it looks like Sebbie’s tyre would have gone also. Loved that shot of Newey head in hands…

    And good to see all the drivers heading the advice to stay off the kerbs!

    No more exploding tyres since they stopped using the kerbs

    Commentary just insinuated that they’d increased pressures by a couple of PSI

    ….and changed tyres to higher pressures.

    No idea what’s going on with these tyres, but it’s hardly a good advert for Pirelli!

    can anyone explain the Vettel hatred? Or is it just people being ****?

    No hatred on my part, find the guy very amiable, I just want a close championship, and for the last few years that means not supporting vettel

    WHAT A RACE

    Clearly what F1 needs is tyre delaminations every weekend. Well maybe that and to race at Silverstone every weekend – it does reliably produce more exciting races than most other circuits.

    Its not hatred. I just don’t like him as a sportsman. I admire his achievements, I just think he’s a conniving little sod beneath the amiable facade and therefore, two faced. Kimi, webber and others were/are blatant in their ambition, honest about how they intend to go about things. Vettel is duplicitous and it’s not a quality which endears him to me.

    Well he doesn’t exactly endear himself to people does he? “I would do it again”

    Interesting juxtaposition:

    Commentator: “What a weekend Nico’s had – his 28th birthday and now a win. He’s had his cake and now he can eat it”

    /pan and zoom in on Rosberg’s missus….

    how many of the best have made that sort of comment though? I’d guess all of them at some point.

    Although, I suppose some may be remembered fondly, but not necessarily popular at the time (we just didn’t realised due to lack of intarnetz?)?

    legend – as I say, others say that kind of thing without the bullshit to the contrary around it.

    It’s the way he says it. The greats have generally managed to say such things without sounding like quite such a nob. To be fair, he’s not the first successful German driver to be an arrogant arse.

    Ooh, cheeky – DC just used the tyre issue as an excuse to get RB to comment on the secret tyre test 🙂

    Perhaps Pirelli should give the affected teams a free tyre test with their newer compounds…
