For their troubles, Vettel and Leclerc were summoned to the headquarters in Maranello to explain themselves and apologise. Now, the Ferrari team head to the final race of the season with the aim to put their woes behind and focus on the task at hand.

Hopefully for their sake, Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc will stay out of each other’s way and end the season on a high note. Then, there will be the task of looking ahead to the 2020 season on a blank slate and challenge Mercedes and see off Red Bull’s charge.

It will be a difficult situation as Mattia Binotto will have to rein in two top class drivers. As the unwritten rule goes, “The team comes first, before the drivers”.

Now, the real questions are, can Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc prevent Lewis Hamilton from equalling Michael Schumacher? Can both drivers get along on the track and work as a team? Will their Brazilian GP crash be the last time they crash into each other? Only time and the 2020 season will tell.
