Rub­bery fig­ures


PIRELLI’S rec­om­men­da­tions on tyre pres­sure for the F1 Ital­ian Grand Prix this week­end could be dis­as­trous, Lewis Hamil­ton has warned.

Two weeks af­ter win­ning a thrilling Bel­gian GP which was punc­tu­ated by spec­tac­u­lar high-speed blowouts suf­fered by team­mate Nico Ros­berg and Fer­rari’s Se­bas­tian Vet­tel, Hamil­ton was scathing about Pirelli’s sug­ges­tion that tyre pres­sures should be raised at Monza.

“That’s def­i­nitely the wrong way to re­act,” he said.

“The wear will be higher and there will be less grip and it could end up in a dis­as­ter. A cou­ple of psi might be OK, but five or six is too much.’’
