POLL: Were Ferrari's Sochi team orders fair on Vettel or Leclerc?

POLL: Were Ferrari's Sochi team orders fair on Vettel or Leclerc?

Ferrari's team orders may not have decided the Russian Grand Prix, Sebastian Vettel's engine failure saw to that, but the Scuderia's tactics remained the most fascinating element of Sunday's Sochi race.

Ferrari concocted a plan to help Vettel jump Lewis Hamilton at the start of the Sochi race, slipstreaming the pole-sitting Leclerc to jump from third place to first at Turn 2.

Leclerc was soon on team radio, requesting to be let through by Vettel, who said he would not do so unless Leclerc could catch up, with Hamilton lurking behind in P3.

Ferrari eventually took matters into their own hands to a degree, giving Leclerc four laps on fresh tyres to undercut Vettel, who promptly retired with an MGU-K failure.

When the VSC was activated, it allowed Hamilton to take a pit-stop without giving up position to Leclerc and the Brit went on to lead a Mercedes one-two at the chequered flag.

Despite Ferrari's plan, were they right to try and execute it to the letter? Have your say in our poll below and explain your choice in the comments section!
