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.’’
