So there is a lot of tension in the Ferrari drivers' reactions. However, according to Vasseur, there is no reason to worry about the relationship between Sainz and Leclerc: "Out of the car, they have a very good relationship and a good mutual trust."

The team boss continued: "Now they are racers. For sure, you can have this kind of case. It's also because you had [little] between them and this competition all over the season. Sometimes what happened today is part of the game."
