Vasseur: Sainz’s outburst was understandable, but we made the right call

Sainz believes that Ferrari should have exercised more patience and described the first pit stop as “debatable.” However, Vasseur stands firm in his belief that the decision was the right one given the circumstances.

“I think it was a good strategy because when we asked him to pit, it was to avoid losing a position against Hamilton,” Vasseur explained. “Positions are key on this track. It would have been better to extend if we were not at risk from Hamilton, but in this situation, I think it was the good call.”

Vasseur acknowledged Sainz’s frustration and understood the reason behind it. “He was a little frustrated,” he admitted. “He was behind Ocon and saw Alonso and Verstappen driving away. He probably had better pace and was frustrated.”
