Ferrari's current problems have already given rise to rumours as the blame game among the team members intensifies. The team's manager this season, Frederic Vasseur, hasn't been able to live up to expectations. As a result of a number of behind-the-scenes measures, rumours about Carlos Sainz quitting the team shortly have surfaced due to the team's favouritism towards Charles Leclerc for a variety of reasons.
The allegations are related to Ferrari's alleged favouritism of Charles Leclerc, the Monaco driver who surpassed his teammate last season and is still running strongly. However, a lot of supporters think that Sainz wasn't given a fair shot from the start and that the squad has been primarily unlucky.
After Lapo Elkann's now-deleted tweet, there is another and possibly more significant reason. John Elkann, the head of Ferrari,'s brother Lapo tweeted, "Santander for me terrible bank." How does this change anything? To put things in perspective, Santander is a Spanish bank that joined the Maranello-based company one year after Sainz did. Previously, the bank moved from McLaren to Ferrari in the same direction as Fernando Alonso.
Carlos Sainz, a Spaniard, is a proud member of the Ferrari squad, which is an Italian one. Many contend that the group has historically favoured residents of the area, including Leclerc. Lapo, who was once a member of the Ferrari board, thus fully supports the Monegasque.
