Tyre failures or punctures have been part of the scene since the dawn of motor racing. Sadly, over the decades many drivers have lost their lives as a result of tyre issues, or presumed tyre issues. It used to be that suspension or wing breakages were just as much of a concern, but they are rare at F1 level in the modern era, such is the technical competence of the teams. When they get into their cockpits drivers have total faith that the car has been put together properly. Tyres are the one part of the car over which teams do not have complete control; complete because Pirelli has made it clear that the current controversy involves how teams operate their tyres, and thus they do have an input into how they behave.

Thed Bjork's victory in Saturday's first race elevated the Cyan Racing driver to third in the drivers' standings and, given Bjork will start the final race second, Guerrieri was likely to need to finish on the podium if he is to maintain his points lead come the end of the weekend. Guerrieri launched his Honda well from pole, and moved to the middle of the track on the approach to the first corner to prevent an attack from Benjamin Leuchter's Sebastien Loeb Racing Volkswagen. Leuchter applied pressure after the intervention of an early safety car and appeared to have more speed that Guerrieri in the final sector, but the superior grunt of the Honda on the main straight meant Guerrieri was safe from attack into Tarzan. The Argentinian's victory was his first since the season-opening race in Marrakech, and preserved the Munnich team's record of winning at least one race at each round so far in 2019. Leuchter was just 0.263 seconds shy across the line, and headed … [Read more...] about Zandvoort WTCR: Guerrieri wins, Kristoffersson on podium
