has pointed the finger at Pirelli
in the wake of last weekend's Italian grand prix.
In fact, despite his psychological title war with teammate Nico Rosberg
, the Mercedes
driver says the tyres supplied at Monza would have contributed to the German's highly controversial 'mistakes' that handed him victory last Sunday.
"Honestly," Hamilton is quoted by Brazil's Totalrace, "the tyres were too good last weekend.
"It was basically very easy in terms of making one (pit) stop.
"There was only one risk," the Italian grand prix winner explained, "and that was if you got a flat-spot.
"That's why we saw so many drivers going straight at the first chicane -- to avoid damaging the tyre, otherwise they would have had to convert to two stops which would be much slower," said Hamilton.
"I think Monza is such a cool track but I don't know if it was a cool race to watch -- more battles, more pitstops would have been nice.
"If they (Pirelli) had brought a softer tyre it would have been a greater challenge, because the tyre we had was really easy to look after," Hamilton added.
