Ferrari’s day was cut short at the Brazilian Grand Prix when Sebastian Vettel collided with teammate Charles Leclerc after getting passed by him on the straight. Each car suffered damage that ended the race for both drivers with only a handful of laps to go.

Vettel can be heard on the radio yelling “Puncture! What the hell is he doing!” followed by what sounds like German profanity. Can we get a translation here?

Lewis Hamilton took on new tires as the safety car was deployed and then collided with Alexander Albon while battling for second. Max Verstappen won the race with Pierre Gasly getting his first podium in second and Hamilton in third.

Lost in all that was the fact that we had the first podium by an outside-top-3 team in what feels like ages. Two, in fact, even if Sainz cops a penalty.

Seb’s mistake, but also very much a racing incident, contradictory though these things may be to each other. He didn’t need to edge left, but he was ahead by then, so it was his corner.
