Pirelli back Mercedes’ decision to pit F1 star Lewis Hamilton during closing stages of Turkish GP after Brit fumed

PIRELLI are backing Mercedes’ decision to change Lewis Hamilton’s tyres following a spat between the Brit and his Formula 1 team. Hamilton said after: “I feel like I should have stayed out. “The wear of the tyres, especially at the end of the race, they were running basically on the construction. “But more or less all the tyres had exposed cords, not only on Ocon’s car, most of the cars that stopped after lap 47/48 were completely finished. “I was suggesting to our allocated engineers to warn the teams to change the tyres and not to go to the end because it was a risky move.”. And Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff concurred with his staff it was ‘clear’ Hamilton would not have completed the race without the tyre change.
