    VET’s whiny teammate didn’t demonstrate supremacy today either.   Another bad break for VET and proof Ferrari still has much work to do as HAM coasted to an easy victory.  


    Re: 2019 Russian F1 Grand Prix at Sochi

    Vettel didn’t let LEclerc pass and then he stopped the car at a place to provoke a safety car. Without electric power you can drive surely to a better place. I think there will be a lot of internal discussions.

    Leclerc trailed behind Vettel after Vettel made a superior start.   Ferrari said they told Vettel to stop the car immediately to prevent additional damage.

    Read the team radio, it is officialy released. Yes, he must stop but could you a place to leave the track with yellow flag.

    Ferrari was a complete joke today. And this nonsense of LEC whining after VET got him at the start is just something you can’t take seriously. The fact that the morons at Ferrari were seriously thinking about letting LEC by on lap 6 (?!?) tells you what a bunch of morons they are.


    Re: 2019 Russian F1 Grand Prix at Sochi

    I mean you can think about switching on lap 53 but on lap 6. complete and utter morons 


    Re: 2019 Russian F1 Grand Prix at Sochi

    And LEC continues to be an entitled immature joke


    Re: 2019 Russian F1 Grand Prix at Sochi

    Perhaps, it would be better for VET to just leave the Ferrari Kindergarten and retire...Apart from perhaps "loving to race", what could keep him in F1 - he doesn't need to prove anything to anybody ? Besides, I do not understand what Binotto is up to with the Team "Scuderia Ferrari" anyway at the moment...very sad...

    I guess the team wanted to hurry up and get the switch over with as per the "agreement" Smiley

    except he keeps taking the pole...so he must be fast. Ferrari needs a new tactician...that is one thing for sure...

    1. It was Ferrari's strategy to get Vettel to the first place at the start and then switch again

    2. I also believe that VET could have parked the car at a better place

    Vettel is smart enough to know, that LEC would overheat his tires driving after him. So Vettel just has to push with free air and to prevent LEC to come to close to him. 

    Binotto will have a hard time with VET and LEC. Obviously, LEC is faster and VET don´t want to be a number 2 driver.

    VET had lost a half round before his MGU-K - so it was time to find a better place - but once again VET is smart.

    Regardless of what Ferrari management do from now on, Mercedes are bound to win both Titles, provided that Hamilton stays healthy and he is not jinxed by extraordinary bad luck.

    For Ferrari it is another  Arrivederci season. The way I see it, is for Ferrari to win a championship, Mercedes have either to withdraw from F1 or reduce their commitment in order to concentrate on other forms of motorsport. F1 seasons are long and Ferrari don't have the consistency and stamina, either from the organizational or the technical side.

    Leclerc is a promising young talent but he must learn to be patient and stop whinging because this spoils his image and reduces his chances of joining a potentially more successful team than Ferrari in future.

    Vettel was unfairly accused of stopping the car at that spot so as to have the VSC deployed and upset Leclerc's chances of winning.

    However, the Ferrari F1 boss, Binotto clarified that  the call for Vettel to stop on track immediately at that place was made by the team on safety grounds. Apparently following the electrical problem on the power unit  there was loss of insulation on the car with unknown consequences if it kept going.

    Ironically, had this happened 100 meters further, the Ferrari would have gone into the pit lane and the VSC wouldn't be deployed. Unlucky for Ferrari and a stroke of good luck for the Mercedes-Hamilton outfit. But as the say "luck favours the strong"
