Carlos Sainz’s incident in Las Vegas triggers reactions at Ferrari
The Las Vegas Grand Prix, part of the Formula 1 calendar, has left an indelible mark, particularly on the Ferrari team and its driver Carlos Sainz. What started with an unexpected incident due to a poorly sealed sewer that damaged Sainz’s car triggered a series of events that affected the Italian team’s performance during the race.

Vasseur’s dissatisfaction stemmed not only from the incident itself, but also from how the situation was handled. “I’m a little more upset about the way they handled it than the incident itself,” Vasseur said., quoted by Racing News 365.
