Vettel and Leclerc called to Ferrari headquarters after Brazil collision

Vettel and Leclerc called to Ferrari headquarters after Brazil collision

Ferrari team principal Mattia Binotto will call Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc in for a meeting at Maranello to get to the bottom of the costly collision at the Brazilian Grand Prix.

At a safety car restart prompted by Valtteri Bottas' retirement, Leclerc had the run on Vettel with fresher tyres, but the German fought back on the back straight, with the aid of DRS.

As the German looked to shut the door on his teammate, their wheels touched, causing a dramatic failure on Leclerc's front right and leaving Vettel with a puncture.

Both retired immediately, handing Ferrari their first scoreless race since Singapore 2017 and leaving Binotto looking for answers.

"I have not reviewed yet, I don't want to do it yet, I think doing things in the heat [of the moment] we may have the wrong conclusion," said Binotto.

"I heard both drivers, but they will come as well together [at Maranello] to discuss again what happened today and there will be time for the team to analyse all the video and the data.

"Whatever will be the judgement, more important is we are disappointed and sorry for the team, but first the two drivers should be sorry for the team as it has been a very small crash with big consequences, but they are silly things that should not happen.

"It's a matter of recognising eventually what have been the actions and mistakes. It's important, because that can only make you better.

"There will be time altogether at Maranello to understand what happened. It's not [for] me to blame them, it's [for] them to recognise it."
