Renault As reported on

while in the previous two races the tyre problems weren’t as severe due to Renault’s mass dampers, which are devised to regulate tyre performance in order to give better grip, at Hockenheim the team weren’t able to run with them and suffered the full effects of their blistering Michelin tyres.

“I think we know where the problem is. It can be rectified quite easily,” Renault’s Director of Engineering Pat Symonds told The Telegraph. “We’ve learnt so much already about what happened during the race in Germany that we can get back a long way.”

Not guilty unless proven so !!! And with their Mass Damper issue not set to resolve before next race weekend, it only make sense to use them. Whether that makes any difference is yet to be seen.
