Brazilian Grand PrixCharles Leclercferrariformula one First Published: November 18, 2019, 6:37 PM IST Sao Paulo: Ferrari team boss Mattia Binotto has called drivers Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc to a clear-the-air meeting after their collision wrecked the team’s hopes at the Brazilian Grand Prix.The pair, who collided while fighting for fourth place on Sunday, were forced to retire from the race, leaving Ferrari embarrassed and pointless and the drivers arguing about who was to blame. “There will be time (for us all) together at Maranello to understand what happened,” said Binotto, in the wake of a tempestuous race won with authority by Red Bull’s Max Verstappen.”It’s not for me to blame them, it’s for them to recognise it.”Speaking to reporters in the aftermath of a costly race for the scarlet scuderia, Binotto said he needed time to take stock and review the crash, on lap 66 of the 71-lap race.Both cars were damaged and forced to retire in the incident, which came after a Safety Car restart when Vettel ‘closed the door’ on a challenging Leclerc.It resulted in Ferrari’s first scoreless race since the 2017 Singapore Grand Prix and refocused criticism on the team’s habit of generating self-inflicted damage — and the fractious relationship between their drivers.SORRY”I have not reviewed yet, I don’t want to do it yet,” insisted Binotto. “I think doing things in the heat of the moment, we may have the wrong conclusion.”I heard both drivers, but they will come as well together to discuss again what happened and there will be time for the team to analyse all the video and the data.”Whatever will be the judgement, more important is we are disappointed and sorry for the team.”But first, the two drivers should be sorry for the team — as it has been a very small crash with big consequences…”They are silly things that should not happen.”It’s a matter of recognising eventually what have been the actions and mistakes. It’s important, because that can only make you better.”He said the Maranello meeting would not be about apportioning blame and punishment.”It’s not a matter of fining or blaming,” he said. “They were free to fight, we let them race and the reason for that is that we have the second place in the constructors’ (championship) …”Free to fight doesn’t mean to do silly actions, especially between the two team-mates and the two Ferraris. For me, it was simply a silly action.”There is always something you can do better, but today the mistakes were from the drivers. As a team, what could we have done better? We need to think…”And, certainly, we need to improve that for the future and that it is not to happen anymore.”
Assuming the 35-year-old gets a clean bill of health, theCardinals would be foolish not to explore the idea ofadding one of the greatest QBs the game has ever seen.Manning has shown no signs of slowing down, and the ideaof pairing him with Larry Fitzgerald is enough to make anyCards fan drool. Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation 0 Comments Share D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke According to former NFL GM and current CBS NFL analystCharley Casserly, Arizona could be a landing spot forPeyton Manning, should the Colts release the veteran inthe coming months. That, he said, is possible because theQB is due a $28 million bonus that the team will likelyhave no interest in paying, especially if the Colts draftStanford QB Andrew Luck with the top pick in a few months.“One team I would watch: the Arizona Cardinals,” Casserlysaid on Sunday’s show. “They can get out of the Kevin Kolbcontract, and also Ken Whisenhunt’s been down this roadbefore. “A veteran quarterback coming at the end of his career,Kurt Warner.”Indeed, the Cardinals have been down this road before, andfor sure, it worked out well. However, would a coupleyears of Manning be worth cutting Kolb, who is due arather large roster bonus himself, just one season aftertrading for him?In a word, yes.But before you go and order your custom No. 18 Cardinalsjersey, there are a few things to keep in mind, not theleast of which is the fact that, should he be released,Manning will have no shortage of potential suitors. After all, Manning is just one season removed from a 4,700yard, 33 TD campaign, so it’s not as if this is a guy on asteep decline. The former number one pick has thrown for54,828 yards and 399 touchdowns over the course of hiscareer, consistently leading his team to the playoffs andwinning one Super Bowl. All but a handful of teams wouldbe better with Manning under center, and while it’spossible the Cards would have some interest in Manning,there is no guarantee Manning will have any interest inthe Cards.
