Safnauer: We understand how to work with tires


Before the French Grand Prix, Pirelli published the results of an investigation into the incidents in Baku, according to which none of the damaged tires had manufacturing defects, signs of fatigue or delamination, and the causes of the problems could be related to operating conditions.

Aston Martin reacted skeptically to these findings, stating that it has always followed the tire manufacturer’s recommendations. Team leader Otmar Safnauer is confident that the performance in Paul Ricard once again proved that they know how to work with rubber.

Otmar Safnauer: “In Paul Ricard, both riders covered long stretches. Hopefully this will silence everyone who has argued that we are somehow circumventing the regulations in dealing with tires. We have never broken the rules and we will not. We just understand very well how to work with rubber, and in France we have demonstrated this again.

The team followed a new technical directive requiring everyone to increase tire pressure. But we still worked well with rubber. Perhaps we should pay attention to some of our opponents who lost in speed – and find out exactly what they were doing.

I hope that at the Red Bull Ring we will perform a little better than in France. At Paul Ricard, we could not show what the car is capable of in qualifying. If we qualify better in Austria, we will have a great chance of earning a lot of points. “
