Shanghai, China -- Inan article titled, "The Chinese Grand Prix from a tyre point of view", Pirelli has addressed the issue of tyre 'marbles' small chunks of rubber abraded from tyres and subsequently thrown up potentially hitting following drivers in the face.
Pirelli said, "These rubber 'marbles' have always existed in Formula One, but the characteristics of Pirelli's new compounds mean that the pieces are on average larger and softer than the hard and round 'marbles' that have been seen at grands prix in the past."
