After Sebastian Vettel expressed doubts after the Portuguese GP about the equal treatment of both drivers within the Ferrari F1 team, Italian journalist Daniele Sparisci is convinced that the four-time world champion is looking for excuses for his disastrous season.
While Leclerc finished the race in Portimao in a very good fourth place after a new great performance, Sebastian Vettel again had significantly more problems, gaining one point for tenth place in the fight with Kimi Raikkonen.
Vettel openly hinted after the race that there might be differences between the two Ferrari cars, and his claims were immediately denied by team boss Mattia Binotto, who claimed the two Ferrari cars were identical.
Daniele Sparisci expressed his belief for Corriere della Serra that Vettel is looking for an excuse for his disastrous season.
Vettel apparently got Barrichello syndrome. His theses about the alleged inequality of cars serve at best to divert attention from his disastrous season. What benefit would Ferrari have from sabotaging Vettel and deliberately losing points in the construction championship that bring in a lot of money? Vettel doesn’t find himself in this year’s race car and isn’t the only one to have this happen to him. We saw what was going on at Red Bull with Pierre Gasly.
