Head of Mercedes Toto Wolff does not agree with the view that Ferrari stepped in and Sebastian Vettel at the Monaco Grand Prix and specifically deprived of Kimi Raikkonen victory.
The first half of the race, Vettel held on to second position and could only come out ahead after the pit stop, which stopped five laps later than Raikkonen. Many felt that such tactics were non-random and was dictated by the situation in the championship.
“It was not clear how they will work tyres. Had to call in for a pit stop of one of the pilots and put the Supersoft. So Ferrari did, – quotes AUTOSPORT wolf. – Supersoft Kimi was not fast enough, and Vettel at this time, drove some great laps on Ultrasoft, which enabled him to stay ahead of teammate.
I doubt that Ferrari had foreseen such a development. From the point of view of the situation in the standings, this result seems most appropriate, but I don’t think the Scuderia is rigged.
Just this season we have returned to a situation when in case of a victorious double has to explain why he won this particular driver, and not the other.
But in any case, Ferrari has earned a brace, they had the fastest car this weekend. To their credit”.
