Pirelli CEO says `nothing wrong` with F1 tyres despite `several blowouts`
Washington: Tyre manufacturer Pirelli`s CEO has defended the company`s supplies to Formula One, even as tyre blowouts have attracted headlines during the 2013 season.
According to CNN, tyres have blown out in spectacular style and drawn criticism from one of the world`s top drivers, but Pirelli insists there is nothing wrong with the tires it supplies to Formula One.
Pirelli`s CEO has defended the rubber provided by the Italian manufacturer, suggesting some drivers are not using the tires correctly, the report said.
Pirelli is in the third year of its agreement to supply tires to F1, and Tronchetti Provera does not rule out the possibility of extending the company`s deal beyond 2015, the report added.
The 2013 F1 season continues with the United States Grand Prix in Austin on November 17, before coming to a close in Brazil seven days later, the report further said.
