Verstappen's Hard tyre had '50 little cuts'

The front-left tyre removed from Max Verstappen’s Red Bull RB16 during the closing stages of Formula 1’s British Grand Prix had “about 50 little cuts”, according to team boss Christian Horner. Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas suffered a late failure, elevating Verstappen to second, with Red Bull then opting for a precautionary stop, as well as to chase the fastest lap point. Long-time race leader Lewis Hamilton then encountered a last-lap failure though stroked his Mercedes W11 home to take victory. Verstappen began the final lap 34 seconds down on Hamilton and tried chasing down the ailing leader, only to fall 5.8 short, setting the fastest lap in the process. Related Posts...
