Scuderia Ferrari has taken the decision to cancel its customary post-race F1 press conference on Sunday at the Styrian Grand Prix.
After Ferrari’s double DNF on Sunday following a collision between the two drivers at turn three at the Red Bull Ring on the first lap of the race, it was to a certain extent to be expected that Ferrari would decide not to talk to the press after the Grand Prix.
After this double retirement caused by a very pow percentage attack by Charles Leclerc at turn 3, Sebastian Vettel could not hide his irritation, even disgust, and in fact, sped off shortly before the end of the Grand Prix.
It is certainly for this reason that Ferrari decided to cancel its press briefing on Sunday evening, and the atmosphere within the Maranello team has become extremely tense between Sebastian Vettel and the team’s management over the last few weeks.
To recap, Sebastian said he was surprised to learn of Ferrari’s decision not to renew his contract at the end of the year, when the team has chosen to sign the young Carlos Sainz from 2021, who will team up with Charles Leclerc.
In the end, the Scuderia Ferrari left Spielberg with a zero score on Sunday and currently occupies fifth place in the manufacturers’ standings after the first two rounds of the 2020 season.
