Despite running in first and third with Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz halfway through the Hungarian Grand Prix, Scuderia Ferrari failed to get either of its cars onto the podium at the Hungaroring racetrack in Mogyorod.
After the wrong strategy call to switch Charles Leclerc to hard tyres, the Monegasque lost the strong pace in his first stint and dropped all the way back to sixth, allowing Max Verstappen to overtake him twice and increase his championship lead. So why did the Maranello team opt for the hard tyre with Charles Leclerc? And were there some missed clues at the start of the race that could have saved the team from such a bad result?
Discussing Scuderia Ferrari’s race from the Hungaroring on Sunday evening, Autosport F1 Reporter Luke Smith is joined by F1 Editor Matt Kew for the latest edition of Paddock Packdown.
