Esteban Ocon: I find it difficult to understand the tactics of Ferrari

In Shanghai, Ferrari asked Charles Lecler to skip Sebastian Vettel to try to catch up with Mercedes. Monegasque reluctantly complied with the request of the team, but Vettel could not tear himself away from his partner, nor impose the fight Mercedes. Esteban Oconsympathized with Lecler.

Esteban Ocon: “This decision is difficult to understand, and I speak only for myself, and not on behalf of Mercedes. Perhaps the team has its own reasons for doing so. I saw Sebastian get ahead of Charles – when they missed him, he did not drive so fast. In my opinion, the team should again change their positions, and give Charl the opportunity to come forward again – he played better in the race.

We agree with team tactics when there are obvious reasons, and if the pace of the partner is much higher. You can skip a partner to give the team a chance to play the position. But in this case it was unjustified, because Charles was traveling at a pace of Sebastian. In addition, this command tactic spoiled his race. ”
