Spanish Grand Prix - Both Ferraris just off the podium

12 May 2019

Scuderia Ferrari Mission Winnow leaves the Spanish Grand Prix with a fourth and fifth place finish, which definitely did not live up to expectations. It is an even greater incentive to work flat out during the two days of testing at this same circuit this coming Tuesday and Wednesday.

The race. Sebastian got an excellent start, to the extent that he managed to come round the outside of the Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas at the first corner. But the German slightly locked his wheels, which saw him run wide, letting Max Verstappen slip past. All race long, Sebastian and Charles fought the Dutchman to try and snatch back third place, but in the end, with matters further complicated by the appearance of the Safety Car which affected Leclerc’s strategy, it did not happen and the two SF90s finished just off the podium places. Hamilton won from Bottas, with the aforementioned Verstappen third.

Test. Scuderia Ferrari Mission Winnow and the other nine teams are staying on in Barcelona for two days of testing with both the SF90s. On Tuesday, Charles will be at the wheel for the team, while Sebastian will be working for Pirelli. On Wednesday, Charles will take over for the tyre supplier, while Antonio Fuoco will drive for the team test.
