F1 News: Ferrari Drivers Should Admit Their Errors Like Hamilton, Says Ross Brawn

- Advertisement -

Latest F1 News Few people in the maddening circus of Formula 1 are as respected as they are admired than Ross Brawn.
So it goes without saying that when the big, respected figure speaks and shares some insight about the sport, in a candid and inimitable fashion, as only he can, then you pay all ears.
The current managing director of Motorsports, F1 offered his view regarding the widely debated subject, one that is continuing to make headlines well after the dust has settled over the 2019 Brazilian Grand Prix: the Vettel and Leclerc collision at Brazil.
It’s worthwhile to dive into some information about what transpired toward the end of the race at Interlagos.
In an action-packed Grand Prix where the usual frontrunners were busy making massive gains, including the likes of Red Bull and Mercedes embroiled in a wheel-to-wheel battle, the two Ferrari drivers were going hard at each other.

F1 Analysis: Drama on Lap 66

The Vettel and Leclerc collision at Brazil took place seconds after the Alex Albon of Red Bull passed Vettel, moving into the podium position.
Perhaps one cannot be blamed for thinking that this may have left Vettel with a little more desperation to make amends after he had already lost out to Lewis right at the start.
On Lap 66, heading toward Turn 1, the fast and rip-roaring Charles Leclerc managed to get the better of his teammate, Sebastian Vettel in ballsy fashion.
Diving into Vettel’s inside, the young Monegasque lunged forward and took fourth, just before the real drama was to grip the Grand Prix.
Within a few seconds of being passed by the first-time Ferrari driver, Sebastian Vettel remerged in a position to retake the track position and dived onto Leclerc’s outside, his rear-left contacting Leclerc’s front right tyre.
Although the scale of the contact was barely noticeable, the aftermath was of mighty proportions.
Despite it being a light brush between the two red-clad drivers, Leclerc sustained a broken suspension and tyre damage and Vettel would retire seconds afterward owing to severe floor damage and a puncture.
At a time where teams rue losing out one driver from the race, the Vettel and Leclerc collision at Brazil was a terrible outcome, an event that sent both drivers out of the race, Ferrari failing to collect a point.
Both drivers expressing huge discontent from the episode refrained from blaming one another, although a sign of normality, although it wasn’t hard to ignore the tense vibes prevailing in Ferrari’s camp.

Now, Ross Brawn has offered a clear insight into the Vettel and Leclerc Collison in Brazil, citing the example of Lewis Hamilton, who in the aftermath of the 71-lap run apologized to Alex Albon for crashing into him during the fading moments of the race.
Brawn began by saying, “I wouldn’t want to venture an opinion on who was most at fault for the collision.”
He further added, “but in the cold light of day, maybe it would be good if one of them will follow Hamilton’s example and immediately admit culpability, as the champion did regarding his clash with Albon.
“If Ferrari really wants to put an end to Mercedes’ dominance, not only does it need to provide its drivers with a more competitive car next year, it must also ensure that incidents like this one are not repeated.
“Formula 1 is a team sport, especially so in Maranello.”
He was importantly also of the view that this was a time for the team principal Binotto to intervene and suggest both drivers that more than individuals, they are here as a team.
