MILAND, Italy - Pirelli and Ferrari, both Italian companies, will get together prior to the forthcoming Italian GP in September 2015.

The meeting follows the explosion of a controversy at the Belgian GP, where Sebastian Vettel launched an expletive-filled tirade after a tyre blowout at Spa-Francorchamps.

Vettel said: "Nobody has ever seen him so angry."

EMOTIONAL OUTBURST

Italy's La Repubblica newspaper, added: "A war has broken out between Ferrari and Pirelli."

So it emerges that chiefs Maurizio Arrivabene, James Allison and Paul Hembery will sit down to clear the air before the next racing action begins at Monza next weekend.

Hembery, Pirelli's F1 boss, told Bild newspaper he can understand Vettel's "emotional outburst", including an angry face-to-face in the Spa paddock.

Hembery said: "He lost the podium in the penultimate lap but we will certainly sit down and talk about it calmly."

Hembery is also quoted by Spain's Marca: "The teams make decisions based on the data they have and, in this case, something went wrong between us and them.

"Our goal is always to have a good cooperation with Ferrari.  So let's sit down at a table to find the best solutions."

Ferrari team boss Arrivabene added: "First we want to do some checking on the technical side, because we want to be fair and not in any way open an argument between us and Pirelli."
