Not much has been heard from the Pirelli tire test in Bahrain this week, despite the presence of four teams.
However, the silence was broken on the third and final day today when Nico Rosberg used Twitter to report a dramatic incident – and one apparently caused by a tire failure.
He wrote: “Just spun at full speed 320km/h on bahrain straight cause my tire blew up without warning. Thanks to that need to get some toilet paper now.”
However, the Tweet appeared to be deleted shortly after it was posted.Bahrain, Formula 1, Nico Rosberg, Pirelli
