Pirelli on Vettel tyre failure: “no signs of fatigue or structural failure”

Pirelli has blamed Sebastian Vettel’s tyre failure during the Austrian grand prix on debris. The F1 tyre supplier said its analysis of the tyre issue had concluded that “the issue appears to be caused by an item of debris, which led to the breakage of the tyre.” Pirelli investigated “the few remaining parts of the tyre in question, together with an in-depth comparison to other tyres used in the race, reveal no signs of fatigue or structural failure in the right-rear tyre itself.” The results of the investigation were shared with Ferrari.
