Ferrari to hold crunch talks after Charles Leclerc strategy blunder

“At that moment, rain was approaching, and our objective was to set a time as quickly as possible,” explained Vasseur. “If we had pitted at the end of the first lap to switch to soft tires, we would have had to warm up the tires for two laps and postpone the first flying lap by approximately five minutes. It was not the right strategy at that point.”

Vasseur acknowledged that confusion arose from Leclerc not fully grasping the overall picture of the qualifying session. He also mentioned the need for improvement in certain areas, emphasizing the importance of Leclerc understanding the team’s perspective.

“We cannot say that we performed well in qualifying,” Vasseur admitted. “The pace was exceptional, but we finished in 10th or 11th place. This indicates that something went wrong.”
