Re: What Should Ferrari Do?

I think they made the right decisions but were just too slow in making those decisions, not sure about putting Leclerc on the hards that did look a bit like a sacrifice move? I don't think they put Leclerc on hards to sacrifice him. After the decision to let him pass this wouldn't make any sense at...

In fact his start wasn't bad, but he had nowhere to go. And sensibly (finally) he didn't try anyway.

The old layout (even with the chicanes) led to really exciting slip stream battles on a narrow track. I loved it.
