SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS: Pirelli motorsport boss Paul Hembery has admitted that the prospect of qualifying tyres returning to Formula One is now in the hands of the team owners, after the Italian company proposed their return as a means of ensuring every car runs when intended during qualifying races. “In reality, it was a discussion point,” said Hembery, “We’re new back to the sport, there are certain things we’ve seen and we just wanted to know the teams’ opinion. We’ve listened to fans, listened to teams but at the end, it’s the teams’ decision and it really went back to the point I’ve mentioned.”
