Same way Leclerc reliability allowed Mercedes win in Bahrain, matters not it's still Hamilton, Vettel and Bottas.
You are right but how long can Ferrari continue to to support their slower driver? Leclerc overtook drivers in the race, Vettel didn't and admits he was just waiting for a mistake. If I were Vettel I would be beginning to get embarrassed.
Delusional does not begin to describe the nonsense you put above, yeah will back a driver who put it in the barrier overtaking midfield drivers versus the guy who finished second, I can see why you are the most sort after Team principal in the paddock.
Vettel was slower than Leclerc in qualifying. He got through to final qualifying at Leclerc's expense after Ferrari made a complete mess of Q1 but at least Leclerc had a go at racing on race day making passes on a circuit renown for being a hard to overtake on.
Vettel had a continuance of his recent error strewn performances, he hit the barriers on 3 occasions and looked a shadow of his former self.
In interview yesterday he seemed disengaged and when retirement cam up he denied it, however, when these words crop up in interview often the real thing isn't far away.
I don't understand your attack on Leclerc, I thought you supported Ferrari, he can only get better and I believe Vettel is slower than him, backed up by some recent recorded times, as time goes on Leclerc can only get faster.
By all means support your man but blindly denying what many already see as reality is, in your words delusional. All the goading in the world wont change the fact that Vettel is in decline. In 2 years time Vettel, Kimi and Hamilton may well be gone. Leclerc, Verstappen and Albon? will be names on caps and T-shirts. Face up to it.
