There was drama for all the money in the end on Sunday's Formula 1 grandprix on the legendary Silverstone circuit.
All three cars punctured on the final laps, among them both of the Mercedes cars, which was in the front.
While world champion Lewis Hamtiltons puncture happened on the last lap, and he had lead enough to fight the car to victory on three wheels, lost teamkammerat Valtteri Bottas in second place and ended up outside the points.
Carlos Sainz (McLaren) smoke out of the points due to puncture.
Punkteringerne now get the Italian dækprocent Pirelli, which supplies tyres to the entire Formula 1 field, to initiate a thorough investigation of what may have happened.
- We will not exclude anything. We will create a 360-degree analysis, and we exclude nothing in advance, for it will be a big flaw with such studies, says Its Formula 1 manager, Mario Isola, to autosport.com.
- We need to consider all the options.

Therefore, get Pirelli to look at all the tires from the race and not only the ruined.
An accident got almost all the drivers to go in the pit early in the race and change tyres, and was therefore everyone's tyres well worn, as the checkered flag approached after the 300 km drive on the very dæknedslidende high speed line.
the Wear was severe, but Pirelli boss dare not to conclude anything in advance, even if the carbon from a few mishaps on the track, also easily may have contributed to the dækproblemerne.
- What we can do is to analyze the tires from the race in order to understand whether there is something in the structure, which was subjected to excessive stress or something, " says Isola.
Pirelli-people get busy with the investigation, if there is to be a reassuring answer for the riders before the next contest.
It is already in the upcoming weekend because of the coronakomprimerede calendar - and again put the Silverstone asphalt to the.
