The Missed Clues That Could Have Saved Ferrari’s Hungarian GP

Despite running in first and third with Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz halfway through the race, Ferrari failed to get either of its cars onto the podium.

After the wrong decision to switch Leclerc to hard tyres, he dropped all the way back to sixth, allowing Max Verstappen to overtake him twice and increase his championship lead.

Discussing 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.
