Ferrari to hold crunch talks after Charles Leclerc strategy blunder
“We have to reflect on what happened,” Vasseur stated, according to Motorsport.com. “We will have a meeting to discuss it on Tuesday and find a resolution. We can always improve our performance. However, it is true that the immediate impression you have ten seconds after qualifying is not always the most accurate one.”
Vasseur confirmed that a productive conversation had already taken place with Leclerc, providing him with a comprehensive overview of the situation during the session, leading to a more amicable atmosphere.
Ferrari’s decision not to fulfill Leclerc’s request was based on the expectation of rain arriving soon after the tire change, potentially preventing the driver from setting a competitive lap time.
