Pirelli is going to examine: We don't want to exclude anything

It was a spectacular end of the British Grand Prix after several drivers had to deal with a flat tire. Pirelli Formula 1 boss Mario Isola announced that the tyre supplier would "analyse everything 360 degrees".

Flat tires at the end of the ride

In the final laps of Sunday's Grand Prix Lewis Hamilton, Valtteri Bottas and Carlos Sainz had to deal with a flat left front tyre. Bottas and Sainz went into the pits with one lap to go, while Hamilton won the race by crossing the finish line with three wheels.

"We will obviously investigate what happened in the last few laps. It's a bit early now to give you any conclusion. It could be high wear, because for sure tyres with 38 laps or more on this circuit are quite worn, but I'm not saying that the wear is the cause of the issue", says Isola to Autosport.com and others.

Pirelli doesn't rule anything out

Isola says the partially broken front wing of Kimi Raikkonen may also have caused the punctures. "We don't want to exclude anything, we want to analyse everything 360 degrees and avoid excluding any possibility because it's a big mistake when you make these kinds of investigations."
