Vettel may come up with a new chassis in Spain: If it helps, why not?

Ferrari has indicated that the team is open to changing the chassis of Sebastian Vettel's car. They will do this when the German feels that there is something fundamentally wrong with the SF1000.

Two dramatic weekends

While Charles Leclerc finished third and fourth in the last two weekends, Sebastian Vettel finished tenth. On Sunday the man from Heppenheim even had to settle for a twelfth place outside the points. Ferrari's team boss Mattia Binotto has let it be known that the team is open to letting Vettel start with a new chassis in Spain, should he wish to do so.

“It is something at least which I didn't discuss [yet],” said Binotto quoted by Motorsport.com. “That's part of the discussion we have within teams. I think we are open if it is something that may help. Why not?"

“I think whatever we can do to help is important for us, for Sebastian, and I think from a team point of view and a driver point of view, to try to make better in the next races. It is important, so open to do it. I will leave it to the driver and the team to discuss and decide.”
