    Boycott na ng mga drivers ang German GP kung hindi papalitan ang Pirelli.

    grabe sir niky just a difference of 2psi and it is a matter of life and possible death.

    Probably greater than that... someone on another forum mentioned those teams were running 15 psi... which is a far cry from 21...

    Pirelli given chance to test after Silverstone failures



    Pirelli has been given six days of testing in order to sort out the problems witnessed during last weekends British Grand Prix.

    Two separate test sessions lasting three days each have been allocated to the Italian manufacturer in order for them to prevent the tyre delaminations seen during the Silverstone round.

    Lewis Hamilton, Jean-Eric Vergne, Felipe Massa and Sergio Perez all suffered high-speed failures to their left-rear tyre during the 52 lap race. The surprising failures have caused for urgent and immediate action as the German Grand Prix is just days away.

    Bernie Ecclestone claimed on Monday to The Guardian that Jean Todt – head of the FIA – had allocated Pirelli time to test the troubled compounds: “They (Pirelli) have complained in the past when these tyres have delaminated – which is certainly nothing to do with it (what happened yesterday),”

    “They’ve said they’d like to sort it out, but they don’t have a chance to do any testing because of these bloody silly restrictions we have. But I spoke to Jean Todt over the weekend and he has said ‘Let them test’.

    “So he has allowed them to run two three-day tests between now and…well, when they want, to try to do something for next year, as well as this year, so that’s exactly what’s going to happen.”

    They are already being summoned to the pre-arranged Sporting Committee meeting at the Nurburgring on Wednesday to discuss the tyres and safety.

    The failures were extremely worrying and drivers have claimed that it is “unacceptable.” Pirelli are allowed to test mid-season as shown in the International Tribunal last month but there has been some uncertainty on the specification of car that they can use. However Ecclestone revealed that they can use whatever they want: “They can use what they like. No restrictions. None at all, so they can do what they want,”

    There had been suggestions that this months Young Driver Test would be turned into a full-on tyre test but there has been no official word or confirmation on this. The teams want answers over what happened at Silverstone but Pirelli have said that it is a new issue that they have never seen before.

    Speaking in a statement from Pirelli released on Sunday evening, Paul Hembery said: “There have obviously been some issues with rear-left tyre failures which we have not seen before. We are taking the situation very seriously and we are currently investigating all tyres to determine the cause as soon as possible, ahead of the next Grand Prix in Germany. At the moment, we can’t really say much more until we have fully investigated and analysed all of these incidents, which is our top priority.”

    He did exclude the recent changes to the bonding process which were made to help prevent failures from occurring. He added: “There might be some aspect to this circuit that impacts specifically on the latest version of our 2013 specification tyres but at this point we do not want to speculate but will now put together all the evidence to find out what happened and then take appropriate next steps should these be required.”

    Pirelli is not thought to be attaching any blame to the Silverstone track, so much as saying the kerbs exacerbated an underlying issue. Derek Warwick, president of Silverstone’s owner the British Racing Drivers Club, dismissed as “absolute rubbish” any suggestion the circuit’s kerbs were to blame.

    “These kerbs have been in since 2009 and we have had thousands and thousands of cars go over them and they weer absolutely fine,” Warwick told Sky Sports News. “We have had them checked by the FIA and they conform fully. For me, Bernie, the FIA and Pirelli are bringing the sport into disrepute and they need to have a serious look at themselves.
