F1: Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc react to Ferrari disobedience

Lewis Hamilton managed to take advantage of a mishap from Ferrari before winning the Russian F1 Grand Prix in Sochi. Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel repeatedly ignored orders to let his teammate past after taking the lead early on in the race, with the strategy then costing teammate Charles Leclerc second place. ‘We had agreed before the race’ admitted Leclerc. This is not the first time Vettel has disobeyed team orders. In Malaysia in 2013, he passed Red Bull teammate Mark Webber when the agreement was to hold station in a one-two. Vettel ignored the order and went on to win the race

    This is the reason I hate Ferrari. Who do they really think they are? Switching cars gives F1 an appalling name. Win by pure ability and nothing less.
    Leclerc, catch up and don’t fall behind spitting your dummy out.

    Getting pole position means can no one overtake?? What a lame strategy and cry from Ferrari & Lec. They delayed to box Seb n when pitted it took 3 sec…All respect drained off for Ferrari. Real shame.

    Seb has to go back… Christian Horner would take him all day on side with Verstappen

    Curious, had they not had the agreement, would VET still be a able to overtake LEC? Who would LEC rather give the slipstream to? HAM?

    Weak team trying to keep everyone happy. Will not work perhaps the future is with Charles. Vettle is a bit unpredictable.

    The reason Ferrari is prioritizing Leclerc is because he is closer to Hamilton in the points. A Vettel win has the little impact on the Drivers Championship while having the same impact on the Constructors title so it makes sense that Ferrari would prefer Charles to win…

    Seb refused to run down Ferrari in interviews despite what they're doing to him, he's the bigger man.

    STFU Vettel fans! I hope Binotta shut off Vettel’s MGU today and forced him to DNF

    So this 2 should challenge hamilton and Mercedes?

    Ferrari should stop thinking they can influence the race with smart decisions. It never works, they get it wrong more times than not. Just let the guys race!

    So they are asking quicker 4 time world champion to slow down and give his place exactly for what ? Does Leclerc compete for championship or something ? He only has two win and that is ALL

    media still try making a drama out of nothing.

    I wonder what the agreement for the next race will be? I'm so curious guys!

    Everyone throwing shade at Charles is not being fair. Charles is only 21. Yeah Seb is a 4 time World Champion, but give Charles the time and he can also get there. Stop calling him a crybaby and start supporting the fact that Ferrari wants to put Charles at the top and give him the opportunities to become a World Champion. Obviously Charles doesn’t know as much as Seb, but he is learning.

    Leclerc crying on team radio! Pathetic!

    Agreements are to keep, you are a loser.

    Do away with team orders…. Problems solved

    If I was Charles I’ll object any “handing the position” thing before the race. You can’t confirm that your teammate will give it back to you. Especially when he’s lapping very quick on clean air. Lesson learned.

    Vettel isn't ignorant he's a self serving egocentric brat.

    They've been telling charles and vettel that he has to give him a slipstream at the start, that's why charles didn't turn right to block hamilton.. And they obviously arranged to swap places after that slipstream…which helped vettel a lot at the start…. and he just didn't do it and waited till hamilton was close enough that a swap wasn't save anymore….

    Why is everybody hating Leclerc? Why didn't do everyone this hate after the Monza race? He can't always win.

    Funny openly talking about the "Race Fix", never seen this before, or at least Mercedes always denied it, LOL.

    This is not racing. Racing should be the fastest man wins. Sub clearly had Leclerc beat off the line and throughout until his race was compromised.

    This is race-fixing, and they are (Ferrari/ Leclerc) shameless about it. At least "Valteri, it's James" during Singapore was to secure 4-5 and save Hamilton from Albon, here they just want Leclerc to be ahead for no apparent reason.

    Stupid team orders! The order should be put your foot down, push hard, step on it and aim for pole NOT slow down so that your teammate can pass!!! This is a race not sweetheart games!

    So lecrylecry undercut the leader? And still crying…wawawa…mama…papa……hahahahahaha

    Ferrari are doomed, I liked Charles’s but now he is whining too much . Vettel was quicker

  32. Avatar

    Vettel was clearly the fastest guy at Sochi, Charles was second at best. Ferrari should really be embarrassed after Sochi, they really need to unf**k themselves! Vettel's problems on the track started a couple of years ago when he didn't get the team help he should have when he was fighting for a championship, so he began starting to take things upon himself and at times pushed too hard…

    I feel vettels days are numbered now

    PARA FERRARI SU PILOTO 1 ES LECLERC, POR LA SIMPLE Y VERDADERA RAZÓN DE QUE EL REPRESENTANTE DE LECLERC ES EL HIJO DE JEAN TODT HOMBRE DE FERRARI Y ACTUAL ADMINISTRATIVO DE LA FORMULA 1. POR ESO SUCEDEN ENTRE COMILLAS ACCIDENTES COMO CUANDO EN UNA CARRERA PASADA VETTEL ENTRA AL PIT STOP Y NADIE ESTABA LISTO PARA CAMBIARLE LAS LLANTAS, TAMBIEN ESTA CLARISIMO QUE A VETTEL LE BAJAN EL PODER DEL MOTOR PARA QUE TENGA UN RENDIMIENTO INFERIOR A LECLERC… ESTA CLARISIMO INVESTIGA Y LO VERAS SI TODAVÍA NO HAZ COMPRENDIDO QUE TODO ES CUESTIÓN DE INTERESES ECONÓMICOS, A VETTEL LO SABOTEARON TODA LA TEMPORADA….

    I'm a Ferrari's fan and I like both of my driver, but I really hate both leclerc and vettel fan, they're act like a KPOP fans.

    It is not Charles that should be making a decision whether Vettel will get a slipstream of not. It is there available for anyone in P3 regardless! So stop crying Leclerc! just race. Also the swap doesn't makes sense specially if the car infront of you is far behind. Are you asking him to slow down for you to let you pass? Your attitude is irritating!

    Charles in charge…

    Yeah we saw how the position swapping went down with Bottas and Leclerc later in the race. Ferrari is just handing out wins to Mercedes at this point, wtf is happenning guys?

    Versteh immer noch nicht warum Vettel ihm vorbei lassen sollte obwohl er einen Abstand von fast 4 sek hatte. Besprechungen hin oder her. Ein Rennen kann man nicht vorher bestimmen, hoffe in Japan wirds besser.
