Pirelli reveals cause of Azerbaijan GP F1 tyre blowouts

Lance Stroll and Max Verstappen suffered high-speed tyre blowouts having run on Pirelli’s C3 tyre for over 30 laps in Baku. F1’s official supplier suggested after the race that the cause of the tyre failures was due to debris because it found cuts on Lewis Hamilton’s set of C3 tyres. Following its investigation, Pirelli concluded that wasn’t the case and that there was “no production or quality defect on any of the tyres, nor was there any sign of fatigue or delamination.” As a consequence, a new technical directive has been put in place for the next race at Paul Ricard with revised operating parameters.
