F1: Ferrari mess in Monte Carlo, Perez mock Leclerc – Sport
Written by aquitodovale

Was The appeal lodged by Ferrari against Red Bull was rejected by the race commissioners relating to today’s Monaco GP. The Maranello team asked to assess whether the behavior of the two drivers Perez and Verstappen, who would have crossed the yellow line of the pit lane when exiting the pits after the pit stops, had not represented a violation of FIA rules. If the commissioners had agreed to Ferrari by inflicting a 5 second penalty on the Red Bulls, Sergio Perez would have lost the victory and Max Verstappen the podium. The success in the grand prix would thus go to Carlos Sainz while Charles Leclerc would have finished in second place.

“I love this team, but what happened today is not good. I have no words
, we can’t do something like that. “Charles Leclerc is furious after the Monaco GP in Monte Carlo. The Ferrari driver retraces the mess that probably cost him his success, the second pit stop.” It hurts – he tells Sky -. There are a lot of races and we have the pace, but we can’t afford to finish fourth, when we had a 6 “lead over second. It hurts and what’s more at home. We lose a lot of points. I need the help of the team, today we took a wrong decision before and another after. There have been many mistakes. “

“We made one mistake, maybe two“It is the mea culpa of Mattia Binotto, Ferrari team principal.” It was a mistake to stop him, we had to leave him on the track to defend the leadership and then switch directly to slick tires. These are errors that we will analyze and that will make us grow. These are events that can happen, if they allow us to become stronger as well as they do. “That said – he added – if Latifi doesn’t block Sainz for half a lap and steps aside, Carlos wins the race.”

“For us it’s not over here”. Mattia Binotto, Ferrari team principal, after having made mea culpa for the mistake on Leclerc, announces a possible appeal on the result of the Red Bulls at the Monaco GP. “Verstappen certainly touched the yellow line, perhaps Perez too,” he told Sky about a possible infringement coming out of the pit lane after the tire change. “For us the race is not over – he added -, we have already asked and will ask for explanations because the notes of the Clerk of the Course must be followed and they say to stay to the right of the line. For us it is obvious”

It was a really crazy race, but we did everything we had to do. Going on up to fit the ‘slicks’ was the right decision, then I got out behind a dubbed car and that ruined our plans. It was the right choice to try to take the lead, but then I had to face 12 corners behind a lapped car: that’s where I lost the victory. “So, on Sky, Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz, after second place in the Monaco GP , in Monte Carlo. “Graining? I had it too, entering the tunnel was difficult, I went close to try overtaking but, if I had braked later I would have gone out “, concludes the Spaniard.

“It was a dream and I realized it: it is dedicated to my whole country”. Sergio Perez wins for the first time this season, and he does it in Montecarlo. “After a race at your home – says the Mexican from Red Bull, first at the finish line of a GP of Monaco characterized by sluggishness and accidents – there is nothing better than winning in Monte Carlo. In the final laps it was difficult to keep to mind Sainz, but everything went well “.

The Monaco GP ended on lap 64. After today’s verdict, on the Monte Carlo circuit, Dutch Max Verstappen – on Red Bull – gained a few points in the F1 Drivers’ World Championship against Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc, chasing at -9. The reigning world champion, in fact, has 125 points in the world ranking, the Monegasque chases with 116. Sergio Perez, after today’s victory, rises to 116, which earns him third place, the British George Russell is at 84, while the Spaniard Carlos Sainz is at 83.

THE RACE – Sergio Perez, at the wheel of a Red Bull, won the Monaco F1 GP, disputed between a thousand interruptions on the Montecarlo street circuit. The Mexican driver preceded the Ferrari of Spaniard Carlos Sainz Junior at the finish line. Third was the other Red Bull, that of the Dutch world champion Max Verstappen, fourth the Monegasque Charles Leclerc with the other ‘Rossa’ from Maranello.

The Monaco GP has restarted,

According to the regulation, the race must be completed within 2 hours (43 minutes left), so it is not certain that they will complete the planned 77 laps, given that only 33 have been covered so far.

The Monegasque poleman pays a mistake in the strategy of the Ferrari team and finds himself behind Max Verstappen in fourth place in the Monaco GP, in Monte Carlo, when he ran 22 laps out of 77. The decision to have him return to the pits for a second tire change infuriated the ‘Rossa’ driver who finds himself chasing. “Why why?” Leclerc yelled into the radio, addressing the Ferrari garage.

A lot of water is still rising, but the start of the Monaco GP, in Monte Carlo, actually took place after the laps with the safety car.

The adverse weather conditions forced the Monaco GP to be postponed in Monte Carlo. The race started with a delay of over an hour.
