Fred Vasseur questioned about Charles Leclerc’s crash record

Given Leclerc’s impressive speed and performance, former F1 driver Martin Brundle questioned Vasseur about whether the team must tolerate these mistakes due to Leclerc’s inherent speed or if they were becoming excessive.

Vasseur responded to Brundle’s query during an interview with Sky Sports, stating, “Well, it depends on the circumstances. If you’re speaking about the crash in Baku, I think it was the right time to push, and perhaps he over-pushed. He was in pole with the first lap and knew that everybody would do a second lap, and that he had to push. It’s not the same thing to crash in the last lap of Q3 in qualifying in Baku and to crash in FP2; that’s another story.”
