The Austrian business tycoon also spoke about the tyre failures on both Hamilton and Bottas’ cars at Silverstone, which cost the latter precious podium points.
He refused to put the blame on their DAS system, which was a hot topic at the start of the season and saw Red Bull protest against the use of it.
Meanwhile, Pirelli boss Mario Isola has confirmed a thorough investigation is ongoing to figure out the causes of the tyre failures. Carlos Sainz, Hamilton and Bottas suffered from the same issue during the last three laps yesterday at the British GP.
“We are investigating whether the soft choice for the next race will be re-evaluated. If it was debris, that’s obviously different.”
