No wonder the sidewalls don't collapse onto the rims with a puncture, had a close look at Bottas's puncture and there are flat steel? channels on the inside of the tyre going from rim end to where tread begins and the sidewall is GLUED onto the rim.The inside of tyre seems to be filled with cords and channels going across the tyre.

Put the microphone down Paul......and put your helmet on. Paul di Resta has been tagged by McLaren to be their backup driver for this weekend.
I like the guy...both as a commentator at Sky and a driver.

My friend It's actually 1022HP.

The latest about HAM : HAM requested a meeting (conversation) with MAX and Magnussen...
The topic of the meeting = "Why don't you want to kneel" ?
