F1's new tire strategy certainly made Silverstone exciting.
Lucky no one was hurt.
Isn't Keke a Finn?
And Nico lives in Monte Carlo.
And yes Keke is a Finn
The tire failure situation is only getting worse as the season progresses.
With each race the case for negligence becomes stronger. It may be convenient to blame external forces, but track debris and curb construction alone don't account for this dramatic increase in failure rate.
A driver boycott of the next race is justified by legitimate safety concerns.
Whatever promises Pirelli makes, further failures should result in race cancellations.
A new bonding process was used for the Silverstone tires, correct?
If so, could't they return to what they used earlier in the year, rather than last year's tires?
No matter how the FIA is gerrymandering the rules to cultivate the 'show', these short performance windows, unpredictable reactions, and latest race catastrophic failures can't have buyers clamoring out Monday to buy what was raced Sunday. This entire season has been one big Pirelli debacle.
Same here - hating coverage on CNBC... Make my wife start the recordings to see what they actually are before I watch... Hate knowing the outcome before I've watched.
If Hamilton didn't have bad luck he wouldn't have any luck at all...
At least he hasn't taken a spring in the face.

Zat's vot I am talking about!
There was cheering in my household when Vettel's transmission let go. I enjoyed that, no matter how petty it makes me look.
Pirelli have a massive problem on their hands. They've been blindsided by tires falling apart on a high speed circuit. They'll have to come up with a fast fix before Spa.
On the one hand, it made for an entertaining race. (Maybe the FIA will mandate that 20% of tires on a weekend will suffer explosive delamination, in the interests of the spectacle ) The safety car helped Alonso, Webber, Hamilton and others.
On the other hand, it's an obvious safety hazard and a huge black eye for Pirelli. And Hamilton was robbed of a likely race win.
Man, there was some intense racing it the end. Alonso's pass on Daniel Ricciardo was breathtaking.
Great fun, Zat's vot I am talking about!
Yep we need some random fun back in F1 and people actually looking like they are racing again! I still think there's merit in a crowd initiated scheme to take one driver/car off the track each race at a random moment! The question is whom might it be?
As I understood it Pirelli wanted to use some new tires, and got turned down by F1 race direction.
Perhaps a 10 pit stop strategy is the way to go?
I was going to buy a new Renault yesterday but Vettel's transmission failure put me off.
I wasn't going to buy a Ferrari but Alonso's stirring third convinced me I was wrong. I'm putting Michelins on it, though.

OK.. just one more
where's the Vettel fans?
