The dutch Max Verstappen, team driver Red Bull, harshly criticized Pirelli, the only tire supplier in the F1 after the explanations provided by the brand on the causes of a rubber breakage that prevented him from winning the past Azerbaijan GP.
After an investigation, the Italian company assured that the left rear compounds of the Verstappen and Canadian cars Lance stroll (Aston Martin) were not damaged by material failure and he hinted that this could have been caused by the teams not respecting the recommended pressure parameters.
“They (for Pirelli) explain that they don't have measurement tools during the race, but we gave them the tire pressure and they were within the limits they set. If those limits are not correct, there is nothing we can do about it; we simply follow what is possible within the rules ", explained Verstappen during the previous press conference of the Grand Prix of France.
“If that means we have to increase the pressures, we will, everyone will increase the pressures. But they say they didn't have the correct measurements, but we gave them to them after the race and it was shown that we didn't do anything wrong there… So they can't blame us… I think they have to look at themselves. ", Agregó.
“The team did everything as it should have done. They followed all the guidelines with tire pressure and stuff ”, finished the leader of the World Cup.
