    Pirelli still can’t work out how they were spotted at the Mercedes “secret test”. They had strictly informed all staff to remove their name badges to avoid being identified in the crowds.

    “Once we understand these tyres more, which we will eventually get to, then I think another win is definitely on the books.” Lewis Hamilton.

    Sometimes reality is funnier than fiction.

    “I told you shrinking the Mercedes would cause a significant improvement in its tyre wear”

    “So you remembered to invite all the teams right?”

    Turns out their idea to put old Bridgestones with Pirelli stickers was good…
