Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen disagree over Pirelli tyre failures in Azerbaijan

But Verstappen, who suffered one of the tyre failures, said: “They have to look at themselves.”. Pirelli concluded the conditions in which the tyres were being run were at fault. Pirelli said “there was no production or quality defect on any of the tyres; nor was there any sign of fatigue or delamination” and said that the failures were “related to the running conditions of the tyre”. Asked if he had confidence in the integrity of the tyres, Vettel, a director of the Grand Prix Drivers’ Association, said: “I can’t say 100% yes and I can’t say 100% no.”. “The priority for us drivers is that the tyres are safe and every other interest will always have to come second.”. “I don’t even count it as a mistake,” Hamilton said.
