Hulkenberg being investigated for tyre mix up


It was announced late this afternoon that Force India driver Nico Hulkenberg is under investigation for a tyre mix-up during qualifying for the German Grand Prix.

The FIA stewards believe that the Force India driver had used a set of supersofts tyres in Q1 that the team should have returned after final practice.

The incident is a possible breach of article 24.4 of the sporting rules.

The article states that “two further sets [of the softest compound] must be returned to the Supplier before the start of the qualifying practice session.”

An FIA document said that Hulkenberg had used a set of tyres that had already been electronically returned. We are still waiting to see what the outcome of the situation is.
