Bernie Ecclestone, Paul Hembery, Circuit de Catalunya, Barcelona,Pirelli have issued a further statement from motorsport director Paul Hembery denying the tyre supplier is ‘attacking’ anyone over the tyre failures which occured during the British Grand Prix.

“Contrary to the impression that some people have formed, I would like to underline the collaboration and support that we are receiving from the teams, drivers, FIA and FOM,” said Hembery in a statement.

“In no way are we intending to create arguments or attack anybody. We have taken our responsibilities upon ourselves as our press release indicates.

“But not having full control over all the elements that impact on the use of the tyres, we need everybody?s contribution. With regard to this, we are receiving the full support of all the parties involved, for which we are very grateful.”

In an earlier statement Pirelli identified several reasons for the punctures, some of which were under the teams’ control.
