Ferrari implodes as Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel collide and retire from Styrian GP

July 13, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

Ferrari holds the record for the most grand prix victories, but the prospects for a 239th GP win look slim on the evidence of the team's performance in the Styrian Grand Prix at the weekend.

Following a first-lap collision between Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel, both drivers were forced to withdraw from the race due to the damage their cars suffered.

And although Leclerc's magical driving last weekend during the Austrian GP earned the Italian team a second-place finish, Sunday's drop out compounded a tough start to the season.

In the pouring rain during qualifying, while Lewis Hamilton drove masterfully to earn himself pole position -- which he converted into a nearly 14-second victory in Sunday's GP -- Ferrari's drivers struggled.

Despite the changes made to the SF1000 car -- which Vettel said was like a "different car" -- Vettel and Leclerc finished 10th and 11th respectively, meaning Ferrari didn't have anyone inside the first six places on the starting grid for the second straight week.
