For 41 of the 43 laps that made up the 2015 Belgian Grand Prix, Ferrari looked to have pulled off a masterstroke in damage limitation. Sebastian Vettel was clinging on for dear life in third place, on a weekend where the Prancing Horse had otherwise looked a little lame.
Then the horse did go lame. Vettel's heavily worn right-rear tyre exploded on the Kemmel Straight on lap 42, robbing him and his Ferrari team of a podium finish behind the dominant Mercedes of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg, and leading Vettel to launch a furious rant against the integrity of tyre supplier Pirelli.
It wasn't quite Silverstone 2013, but Vettel's outburst recalled a time when Formula 1 became obsessed with the structural rigidity of Pirelli's tyres, and whether they were so weak as to be exposing drivers to unnecessary risk following a spate of spectacular failures during that year's British GP.
