Charles Leclerc On Wednesday, he met at a dinner at the famous Monaco Hotel de Paris with his Ferrari the boss Mattia Binotto.

It comes amid widespread criticism of the Maranello team’s handling of Leclerc’s race strategy at the British Grand Prix, clearing the way for his team-mate Carlos SainzThe first victory in Formula 1.

“They took the victory away from Leclerc,” the former Formula 1 driver Mark Surer told f1-insider.com.

“It doesn’t get any stupider” Ralf Schumacher agreed.

“Leclerc was in a much better position than Sainz in the championship, so in the fight against him Max Verstappen so tight, they had to do everything to make sure he brought home the win, especially when Max was having trouble.”

Former F1 team boss Eddie Jordan added: “When you have friends like Ferrari’s strategists, you don’t need enemies.”

After the race at Silverstone, Binotto wagged his finger at a clearly furious Leclerc, amid rumors that the 24-year-old had decided not to return to Europe with his team late on Sunday.

He is also understood to have opted not to attend a sponsorship gig earlier this week and instead returned home to Monaco.

Former Ferrari communications chief Alberto Antonini reports that the anger in the Leclerc camp was palpable immediately after the checkered flag when some team members refused to attend the awards ceremony.

“I was told – and I trust the source – about an ugly episode,” Antonini told formulapassion.it.

“Some Ferrari employees did not want to participate in the podium ceremony or be included in the group photo. This is not a good sign.

“A bit of healthy rivalry in the garage is fine, but the common interest should be to strive to win,” he added.

Former two-time Ferrari driver Gerhard Bergerhowever, sympathizes with Leclerc.

“Once again, Ferrari got their way,” said the great Austrian. “It reminds me of my own time of chaos.

“That’s why I’m not optimistic about their World Cup.”

As for Binot’s dinner with Leclerc, fans took pictures of the duo as they parted with smiles at 11 p.m.

When asked about the latest failed strategy last Sunday, the 24-year-old said: “I don’t want to comment on it now, I just want to discuss with the team what caused it in the future.”
