In a new episode of ‘The Paddock’, Sam Dejonghe and Dennis Xhaët were joined by none other than Gert Vermersch for a look back at the GP of Italy.
Ferrari took pole and third place. Carlos Sainz celebrated, but his team failed to resonate. “I think they are afraid to show emotions,” says Vermersch. “And that they have gone too far in the wrong direction. From look: we are down-to-earth and businesslike, we do not make emotional mistakes.”
But on Sunday, like all year, there was nothing to do about Max Verstappen. The World Cup leader took his tenth win in a row and thus became the record holder alone.
In the meantime, George Russell and Lewis Hamilton have extended their contracts with Mercedes until 2025. The analysts appreciated that move. “Especially for Russell, because he deserves a top team,” said Vermersch. “Even though they are performing less now. I even thought two years was a bit too little, although longer than two years would be stupid because you never know when the motivation will disappear.”
