SEBASTIAN VETTEL and Charles Leclerc have suffered more humiliation following their crash in Brazil after F1 boss, Ross Brawn told them to be more like Lewis Hamilton.

Brawn’s stinging verdict comes after neither Vettel or Leclerc took responsibility for crashing into each other in the Brazilian GP.

Both drivers were shielded from the press as they ducked out of Interlagos before explaining themselves to their bosses.

However, F1’s managing director says they should be accountable in the same was Hamilton confessed that it was his mistake for hitting Alex Albon on the final lap of the race.

Brawn said: “I wouldn’t want to venture an opinion on who was most at fault for the collision.

“But in the cold light of day, maybe it would be good if one of them will follow Hamilton’s example and immediately admit culpability, as the champion did regarding his clash with Albon.

“If Ferrari really wants to put an end to Mercedes’ dominance, not only does it need to provide its drivers with a more competitive car next year, it must also ensure that incidents like this one are not repeated.

“Formula One is a team sport, especially so in Maranello.”

Brawn, a former Ferrari boss himself, says current chief Mattia Binotto must now restore order at the Italian team, despite it’s at-war teammates.

He added: “After tensions flared in the races following the summer break, everything seemed to have calmed down in the Ferrari dressing room.

“But now, Mattia Binotto faces the tough task of getting things back on track and indeed he said just that in his interviews after the race.

“He had to get stuck in and tell the drivers to face up to their responsibilities, which in Maranello always means putting the interests of the team ahead of those of the individual, which was not the case in Sunday’s race.”
