Formula One News » F1 2013 – British GP was almost stopped Posted on 01/07/2013
FIA race director Charlie whiting has revealed he nearly stopped the British GP after Sergio Perez’s tyre blew.
“It was quite close to being red flagged. It did occur to me to do that,”
“I don’t want to put figures on it, but it was close,” he added of how many punctures would have ended the race.
“I don’t think we’ve seen anything like this (in F1 history). I can’t remember anything. To have four total catastrophic failures, I believe, is a first.”
