Lewis Hamilton’s dangerous blow-out on his way to British Grand Prix victory on three wheels was NOT caused by debris on Silverstone track but due to ‘extremely long use’, say Pirelli

Lewis Hamilton’s tyre malfunction during the closing stages of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone has been blamed on Mercedes and not on the debris on the track. Lewis Hamilton’s tyre problem during his British Grand Prix win has been blamed on Mercedes. Tyre company Pirelli conducted an investigation and said Mercedes used the tyres for too long. McLaren’s Carlos Sainz was the third F1 driver at Silverstone to suffer a tyre malfunction. After the race, the British F1 icon was adamant that the debris on the track was the cause of his tyre issue. It is the seventh time that 35-year-old Hamilton has won the British Grand Prix at Silverstone. But honestly I think as you could see with my pace, my tyre management was spot on.
