Formula One News » F1 2013 – Did Pirelli break the rules and modify tyres without consent? Posted on 02/07/2013
Spanish newspaper Marca claims that Pirelli broke the rules ahead of the British Grand Prix by modifying the tyres without the consent of the teams or FIA.
Reporter Marco Canseco said “At worst, it jeopardised the lives of the drivers,” who also claims that a Kevlar material was included into the internal steel belt.
Paul Hembery of Pirelli denies the changes and said ”I can assure you that the tyres (at Silverstone) were the same construction as the ones used in Barcelona.”
