From Puncture-stone to Puncture-ring?
Back to back Formula1 GPs means double the excitement for Formula1 fans. But this weekend, it could also mean double the danger for the drivers. After the Pirelli blow-outs witnessed in the 2013 British Grand Prix last weekend, thereâ€™s no guarantee that these wonâ€™t occur in the 2013 German Grand Prix to be held this weekend.
Rishi and I are Indians and in this weekâ€™s episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, we come up with Indian ways of dealing with the Pirelli issue. While we guarantee you a good laugh, we could also guarantee that our solution does sound like the best short-term fix!
At Nurburgring this weekend, we could have a situation where drivers could boycott the race. And also, I boldly blame the fans as well for making the sport reach at the situation we currently are in with regards to our tyres, Pirelli or not!
