from Daniel Go

Numerous hassle within the Ferrari field, Charles criticizes the crew. Binotto: “Carlos was prepared to give up, however it was very troublesome…”

The Brazilian GP ended with a smile for Mercedes for 2 pairs and nerves for Red Bull (Scintille Verstappen-Perez) and Ferrari. Charles Leclerc, above all. After ending fourth and now tied with Perez for second place within the Drivers’ Championship, every part will likely be determined in Abu Dhabi on Sunday 20 November.

The Monegasque requested the wall a number of instances to change Carlos Sainz, to give his pal for the sake of the crew’s plan, however he was not glad. “Think about second place within the World Cup, please give it some thought. Every level counts.” In the ultimate phases Xavi Marcos, his engineer explains why he would not change positions: “We suppose it is too harmful”. And when he reaches the fourth finish, Marcos congratulates him: “You’re fourth, good job”. A sarcastic response from Charles: “Good job? Mama, I’d higher flip off the radio.” A press release that contradicts the frustration of the Monegasque, who was already offended together with his crew on Friday for making the error of operating medium tires on a dry monitor in qualifying.

His weekend was disrupted there, being compelled to begin from tenth place within the Sprint Race after which fifth in the actual Gp. On Sunday he exploded after a race stuffed with surprising occasions, crashing into the again of Norris and sending him into the wall. He miraculously managed to proceed and in such circumstances the fourth place is value half a miracle. adrenaline rush, Charles was comfortable, as typically occurs to him, however the which means of the phrases doesn’t change a lot: «I’ll make it possible for I’m in the most effective place in Abu Dhabi. But this week has been disappointing, we simply need to end the final race, end properly and that is it. ”

Leclerc reveals his disappointment and divulges the background: “We already talked about this, that is why I requested, then we modified our thoughts for some purpose, I do not know what it’s. But it is okay, with Perez it will likely be a really robust combat. It’s up to me to win.” He feels that he has missed the possibility to combat for the World Championship this 12 months, he sees Mercedes making a very good comeback and he appears to be anxious about his future as a result of he has a contract that binds him to Ferrari till 2024. He was punished for a critical error of plan (the Montecarlo), however lately he additionally appears to be unconscious.

On the opposite hand there may be Carlos Sanz who provides his model: “I’ve not acquired any communication by radio”.

But if that is the case, why wasn’t the Spaniard even warned to talk about the function swap within the pre-race conferences? Mattia Binotto’s rationalization: “It was doable and I agreed, if Charles requested on the radio as a result of we talked about it. Carlos was prepared to do it, however on this case, we determined not to proceed and change roles”. Why? “It was very troublesome. Charles behind him had Alonso 1” and Verstappen proper behind him. But the principle purpose is that Carlos was being investigated for driving below the security automobile (no penalty for the Spaniard). The hazard was that Sainz would take 5 seconds, and if he slows down, within the occasion of a penalty, he could possibly be behind Fernando and Max. At that point we’d have misplaced vital info for the builders. It was a threat that shouldn’t be taken.”
