"Normally for race tyres we do a final check for balance to make sure they're OK. Unfortunately we didn't have the equipment there," Brawn said.

"Part of it arrived, we didn't get all of it. So we can't use it. (Tyre supplier) Pirelli balance the tyres, we just like to do a final check. I think most of the teams just do a final check to make sure.

"Because obviously if you have a tyre vibration, particularly in a race it's a serious issue. We'll get Pirelli to re-check out tyres."

"Sometimes things move, you lose a balance weight or a tyre moves and it can deteriorate, so we'll get those wheels and tyres checked. Twenty grams out of a balance on a tyre, a driver can feel quite severely," Brawn said.
