because he was oversteering... If he turned right while oversteering he has a spin and for sure hits 2 cars. He got unlucky that he didn’t hit tyre face to tyre face with Sainz and once he was flicked up he was a passenger.

 

Sorry but once he gets the car back under control he still hangs left

 That start for Leclerc could end up costing Ferrari here. They need to make a decision

Ferrari once again failing the team game. They should let Vettel through and if he cant get any of the Mercedes and Leclerc is still 4th they can easily switch back if that is the problem.

Edit: Finally

Braking a tad earlier is not an option these days?

 

You don't know he didn't try and avoid him... also its a corner exit?

That's Le Clerc done for the race now. He'll get the Kimi strategy.

His only chance is fight and get by asap.

Come on, Ferrari get slated when they don't make the team orders calls like in Germany last year for example. When they do make it people are disgusted. Leclerc too slow today

More weird Ferrari strategy. Would have been the right call five laps ago. Now they look more evenly matched and in any case the Mercedes are a long way ahead.

Team orders... F1's answer to William Shakespeare's wonderful play: Much ado about nothing.

 

Get over it, everyone. The teams own the cars and pay the drivers. They have always and will always have the moral authority to tell their employees what to do.

Disappointing race pace from the Renaults on the softer compound. Had hoped they would be able to hang on to the front runners until their early stop.


2 s per lap slower for the Renaults compared to the leaders... Yikes, so much for their supposedly strong race mode on the PU.

Finally some commonsense by Ferrari. Leclerc not hard done by there. Sorry but you can't be clearly slower than your team mate and not expect the team to order a swap. My only surprise is Ferrari not doing it earlier.
