Formula 1 teams have been issued with a more conservative camber recommendation by Pirelli for this weekend’s Italian Grand Prix, AUTOSPORT can reveal, to prevent a repeat of the tyre controversy that erupted in Belgium. With the build-up to the Spa event being overshadowed by a tyre blistering issue suffered chiefly by Red Bull Racing, as a result of it going beyond the camber limit laid down before the event, Pirelli has reacted swiftly for the high-speed Monza venue. AUTOSPORT understands that teams have been told by Pirelli that the maximum limit it wants to see used at Monza is 3.75 degrees – which is a level that it feels will ensure no overheating problems on the straights but will also not hinder teams through the high-speed corners or chicanes.
