Pirelli understands Verstappen’s tyre-kicking anger

Mario Isola says he can “completely understand” Max Verstappen’s anger which culminated in the Dutchman kicking his shredded Pirelli tyre after a high-speed blowout at Baku. When asked about Verstappen’s anger, Pirelli F1 boss Mario Isola told France’s Auto Hebdo: “I completely understand that. “If it was debris, we have to find out what we can do to prevent it in the future,” said Isola, who thinks Verstappen may have run over carbon parts from Lance Stroll’s similar incident. In our work, the most difficult part is ruling out damage to the tyre after the incident. Damage can also occur when the tyre comes into contact with the floor or suspension,” said Isola.
