“If Ferrari really wants to bring about the end of Mercedes dominance, then next year Ferrari will not only need its competitors a more competitive It also has to make sure that such incidents do not happen again, “says Brawn. Because Formula 1 is understood “primarily in Maranello” primarily as a team sport.

In this regard, Vettel and Leclerc had failed in Sao Paulo across the board. “It's never been nice to have teammates out of the race,” says Brawn. “Especially if it is not even about a particularly important result, as in this case, in Brazil, P3 would have been the highest of the feelings for Ferrari.”

The question of guilt remains unclear

Brawn wonders about what he calls the “unnecessary” collision: “After some tensions in the races after the summer break, it seemed like things were going to be a little bit calmer for Ferrari, but now Mattia Binotto has a tough job “

” He told the riders right after the race, “they should be aware of their responsibility.” In Maranello this means: the team interests in front of their own interests That was not the case in the Brazil race. “

True e prove size Incident and the points missed by the team. Vettel and Leclerc came to this request, but without guilt.

“I do not want to judge who is to blame for the collision,” says Brawn. “But the bottom line is probably intestine, one of them would take Hamilton's example and take responsibility [für den Zwischenfall], just as Hamilton did after colliding with Albon.”

Hamilton had reversed Albon in the penultimate lap of the race, costing the Crimson Bull pilot the first Formula 1 podium result. Immediately after the race Hamilton apologized for that – and got a time penalty, which cost him a high-3-result.
