The overheating, allied to the force being put through the rubber, caused the tyre to fail as di Resta exited the high-speed final corner at the Circuit de Catalunya

Mercedes team principal Ross Brawn believes this weekend’s Bahrain Grand Prix will prove whether or not his outfit has a car that can fight for the 2013 Formula 1 title. Brawn believes that with this year’s competitiveness mirroring last year’s strong start in the opening three races, only a good showing in Bahrain, where the team struggled last year, will show what sort of shape it is in. In 2012, Mercedes followed up its Chinese Grand Prix victory with fifth in qualifying and the race in Bahrain for Nico Rosberg

Speaking at Ferrari’s Wrooom media event at Madonna di Campiglio on Thursday, Alonso said he was baffled by Marko’s stance, especially because if Red Bull had not taken on board the comments, then why was it responding
