No two ways about it, Silverstone places enormous demands on the tyres of a modern F1 car, the left-front in particular. Long-duration, high-speed corners, several of them literally flat-out in these cars with downforce levels that smother even the 1,022 HP from the Mercedes, make it the highest-energy track of all for the tyres.

The loads square with speed. The year-on-year gains invariably add speed. This year’s Merc was, for example, 11km/h faster at the apex of Copse than last year’s. Replicate that around Maggotts/Becketts, Abbey, into Stowe – and you begin to get an idea of how a tyre that was fine last year might not be this year.

And yes we read this well , the Merc is pushed by "1,022 HP" and the tyres suffer under the extra friction when DAS is used ...
well tyre wear helps for punctures etc but what was the reason for McLaren's same tire problem mate without DAS?

Well mate in 3 words : "Silverstone"/"More HP"/"Higher track temps"

To be sure of my statement : We/I will see that next weekend with even higher Silverstone track temps.
Over here in Belgium , a tropical heatwave is coming !

I need rain ASAP !

Yeah I mentioned that in my comment and the Lawrence fist bump before the race. Rumor is there announcement was supposed to be this past weekend but Checo's infection stopped them.

Positive mate . And did you know from what HAM did was "Not Safe" ?

Actually It's forbidden by the FIA safety regulations .And a penalty should/would follow ...
But like usual...The FIA was sleeping !

I couldn't care less. He'll be champion this year no matter what.
It's just amazing how advanced F1 cars are.

Mate . That's for sure . HAM in the '20 Merc is untouchable ...Even stronger and faster than last year !
That's what MAX said in his latest Dutch article from today : "I would be already happy if I could follow the Mercs"

Punctures can happen at any time when you least expect it sometimes with fatal results, remembering Alboretto.

I was thinking that also even with the much stiffer sidewalls designed by Pirelli continuing with a dangerous car at crazy speed is no hero feat however it is put out by the sensation seeking media.A ten second penalty would be appropriate in this case for a kamikaze stunt like that but as you say fia sunglasses were misted!

Lewis was on 3 wheels in last 5-6 corners only guys out of 18, it wasnt a full lap on 3 wheels..
and thinking Porsches can only achieve like 250-260kmh on Hangar but Lewis did like 230kmh on 3 wheels with the help of gliding on front wing is pretty close to that.. but almost 40 seconds over one lap in qualifying difference is crazy its like being a year faster..

The tyres must be filled with nitrogen, look at the first pic of Kvyat's tyre before deflation escaping in a momentary gasy haze.

I rode shotgun in a Cayman Clubsport GT4 car (modified to have a passenger seat) and that thing was so fast it scared me! The Porsche RSR is much faster than that car. What I'm saying is that the crippled Merc was even faster than an RSR!!! Crazy.
Whether it was safe or unsafe it's not something I want to weigh in on as I literally do not care 😂 I'm more interested in that car ride Seb had with Otmar 😬

Come on guys!

It's called racing

To bring the 3 wheel Merc over the finish was extremely brave and skilful. F1 is so clinical today as compared to the days of warriors like Niki, Gilles (pic), Senna, Mansell, even Schumacher. We desperate need excitement like this.

If they'd given Lew a penalty for this I would have left the sport for sure (and I'm no Hamilton fan boy).

yeah Pirelli increased the tire pressures for this weekend with softer tires as planned since probably no time to manufacture and transfer different compounds in this short period..

https://www.formula1.com/en/latest/a...t5AVmg1hE.html ..

Grosjean says if Verstappen did that i can do it as well..

Yes but things have to be looked at in perspective,Gilles back them was barely trundling along and ripped of the back left suspension when scraping into pits.HAM on the other hand was going at a crazy speed well around 230kph? losing control with just 3 good control patches doesn't bear thinking about for his safety and the marshals.
Remember Jacque Villeneuve losing control and marshal fatality?

if each driver d stop when they have a problem we wont have much racing going on my friend.. Lewis wasnt spreading carbonfiber all around or anything.. with your approach then Kimi should have been DQ'd last weekend...

Naturally depending on the problem my friend then common sense needs to be applied though with a puncture I think automatic slow down to say pit lane speed if can continue or park up. If bodywork like a wing is flailing then its the stewards job to collar the team and order the driver in for replacement. It was all the teams' decision to use carbon fibre and not alloy as was used not that long ago so it wouldn't be appropriate to give Kimi a penalty for shedding his CF pieces though if he CONTINUES to drive with it (like Leclerc did before) then a penalty would be in order for him for carrying on with a dangerous component.

"Just confirmed by the Pirelli Tire-Investigation"

Like I said yesterday : The issue of the Mercs tires is "NOT" caused by the CF debris on the track .
The cause is a combination of the huge Mercs HP and extreme strong downforce , and driving too long with worn tires ...

Well....If you ask me , that sounds promising to me . Knowing next weekend a softer Pirelli compound will be used .
And as we know ... It won't get too cold !

MAX....Buddy do you hear me ?
