How Could Ferrari Have Fixed That?

Mithila Mehta and I have partnered with Firstpost for the 2017 Formula 1 Season and will feature in their Firstpost Pole Position videos all through the season. Basically, we’re now available in text, audio and video! 

Did Ferrari smartly move Kimi Raikkonen out of Sebastian Vettel’s way by pitting him first? Did Ferrari know that the ‘over cut’ would be the correct strategy to attempt in Monaco? Did traffic hurt Kimi Raikkonen’s chances even more so after his first (and only) round of pit stop? There’s a lot of questions that fans wish to ask Ferrari, while you might not get an answer from them soon, here’s Mithila and me on the Firstpost Pole Position video from the Monaco Grand Prix trying to answer some of those very questions.


In this Formula 1 video, we discuss how Mclaren managed to score 3 DNFs on Motorsport’s most-awaited weekend, a Mercedes no-show on the podium and how Red Bull Racing might want every other race to be contested in Monaco. Lastly, Haas’ first-ever double points finish (after Romain Grosjean’s demonstration laps in the qualifying session) and Carlos Sainz Jr.’s 6th place – that boy will be in another team in 2018, which one will it / should it be. Tune in!
