Sebastian Vettel: "Pirelli is working on finding out why it happened,"
Aug.23 (GMM) Pirelli returned to the F1 spotlight on Friday, when Sebastian Vettel suffered a puncture during Friday practice at high-speed Spa-Francorchaps.
"Pirelli is working on finding out why it happened," he said.
Simon Cass, the correspondent for the Daily Mail newspaper, said the early suspicion is that debris - rather than a fundamental tyre problem - caused the problem.
Red Bull team boss Christian Horner is quoted by Auto Motor und Sport: "Since Sebastian brought the tyre back to the pits in basically one piece, the chances are good that Pirelli can find the cause relatively quickly."
