I would have thought ultrasonic would have those flat area probes not such a pointy one.

Technically the probe can be almost any size.

Sorry, back on-topic
True GOATs don’t need the help of superior material to win.

Tom Brady, Usain Bolt are true GOATs.

I wasn't aware that they have such equipment (i guess it's ECT?) at the track, especially since (slightly off topic) Ferrari claimed they couldn't have found the issue on Leclerc's car because they lacked the necessary tools to find cracks in metal parts (?)
Most probably this is ultrasonic testing, very standard equipment nowadays.
But if they test it regularly they may be know these are prone to failure.
I'm a Level 3 in most NDT methods and also head of a NDT training and examination centre. I can 100% tell you this is Eddy Current testing and not Ultrasonic testing :wink:

You can tell Verstappen trains in the martial arts, look at how the back is straight, and the elbows are used to generate torque at the waist. Excellent form, then the shadow clone jutsu, to deliver a double molly whoopin to Buemi's car.

More from Motorsport.
In a bid to get to the bottom of what happened, Pirelli flew the tyres back to its Milan headquarters for a detailed analysis in its laboratories.

On Tuesday, the Italian tyre company issued a release making it clear that the failures were not caused by a production fault, wear nor delamination.

It went on reveal that the blowouts were instead caused by a circumferential break on the inner sidewall of the tyres, rather than being the result of a cut from debris.

The statement suggested that the breaks in the sidewall were likely caused by the ‘running condition of the tyre’ – which is probably related to either tyre pressures or the temperatures they were run at.

“This analysis also took in the tyres used by other cars in the race, which had the same or a higher number of laps on them compared to the ones that were damaged,” it said.

“The process established that there was no production or quality defect on any of the tyres; nor was there any sign of fatigue or delamination. The causes of the two left-rear tyre failures on the Aston Martin and Red Bull cars have been clearly identified. In each case, this was down to a circumferential break on the inner sidewall, which can be related to the running conditions of the tyre, in spite of the prescribed starting parameters (minimum pressure and maximum blanket temperature) having been followed.”

Pirelli revealed that new pressure and tyre blanket protocols were to be put in place to ensure there could be no repeat of the Baku problem, with teams having already been informed by the FIA of what new processes must be followed.

While Pirelli suggests how the tyres were run triggered the incidents, Red Bull issued a statement insisting it followed all the recommendations given to it.
It said: “We have worked closely with Pirelli and the FIA during their investigation into Max’s tyre failure on lap 47 of the Azerbaijan Grand Prix and can confirm that no car fault was found. We adhered to Pirelli’s tyre parameters at all times and will continue to follow their guidance.

"We are grateful that following the weekend’s high speed impacts no drivers were injured.”
