Pedro de la Rosa, chairman of the Grand Prix Drivers' Association (GPDA), insists safety is their main priority ahead of this weekend's German Grand Prix.
The GPDA issued a statement late on Thursday in which it threatens to withdraw from the race at the Nurburgring if there is a repeat of the tyre failures which affected several drivers at Silverstone last weekend.
Nineteen drivers on the grid are currently members of the GPDA with Kimi Raikkonen, Adrian Sutil and Valtteri Bottas the only drivers not part of the group.
Current Ferrari test driver De La Rosa says all drivers were in agreement that they should withdraw from the race if there are more incidents in Germany.
"The important thing is we are not talking about boycotting, we are not talking about politics - we are talking about safety," he said.
"There was not one driver against what was decided. Safety is first and if there is any issue with blowouts this weekend we have to think about our own lives, the marshals and the fans.
"It was the first time in a GPDA meeting I have ever been to in my life where absolutely all - not one - showed any doubt.
"It is not worth taking any more risks. All the drivers have gone through enough risk already, for the past few races and especially the last.
"Boycotting is not the word at all: it is about being safe."
Asked as to what action would be taken should an incident arise, De la Rosa replied: "We will see.
"The point is if there is a blow out, we will think about it, look at the case in particular and decide.
"You can have punctures, blowouts for many other reasons, like if there is a big piece of carbon fibre that goes through the tyre. That is part of racing. There is no problem with that.
"It is about being sensible and analysing what happens, but we really think what Pirelli has brought here is safe and they have done incredible work to bring it here in such a short time."
