Much like Red Bull's problem finding an engine supplier after badmouthing all possible suppliers, F1 might have trouble finding a supply of tires.

Maybe Red Bull will buy the intellectual property from Pirelli and start making their own tires! Seems to have worked well for their engine. :)

In case you can't stream it on Peacock, here it is on You Tube. Felix tweeted from the hospital that he is banged up but has NO serious injuries. Miracle.

Felix apparently had the throttle stick and hit the barrier so hard he penetrated the tire wall and broke out the rebar linking the concrete sections together.

F1 needs to be careful with people criticizing their tires.

We know that the Pirelli tires were intended to not be 'perfect' so as to spice up the racing.  Sure, the blowouts might be examples of defective tires, however when you design a tire to degrade, there's a good chance that it will.

Either Pirelli will start making indestructible tires, or simply get tired of taking the blame for doing what they were asked to do and leave the sport.

Much like Red Bull's problem finding an engine supplier after badmouthing all possible suppliers, F1 might have trouble finding a supply of tires.

Ok, Max can be a bit of a windbag like his Dad but.... the tires still failed on Stroll's car before the Red Bull and he was not going for fastest laps or pushing them overly hard.
Those accidents were not driver error or track debris issues, the tires failed at speed.
Pirelli needs to look into this as I'm sure they are.

I once saw a guy stopped by an Arizona Highway Patrol officer in an unmarked El Camino that had a bale of hay in the back! Wish I had a picture.

Totally agree.  The tire life may have been around 40 laps, but putting in purples throughout the race is impressive, it’s not very intelligent.

Besides things listed above -

Heroes:

Schumacher - For the reasons Ali listed above.

I'm still waiting for further info on Pirelli. During the race, it reminded me of the Michelin debacle at the 2005 Indy U.S.G.P. We'll see how it all shakes out.
