Charles Leclerc brings winds of change to Ferrari in move on No 1 spot
Sebastian Vettel started the year as Ferrari’s lead driver but his 21-year-old teammate has disrupted the status quo
Formula One may have had to hunker down this weekend when Typhoon Hagibis forced qualifying for the Japanese Grand Prix to be postponed but Ferrari were already busy weathering a storm of their own. Hagibis will pass but the turbulent air at the Scuderia may continue to roll.
Team orders left Ferrari looking poorly organised and impotent at the previous race in Russia. They want more victories now they have the car to achieve them. But, as Lewis Hamilton suggested, perhaps what they need – with the mechanical finally firing – is a rethink.
