Charles Leclerc says his team-mate Sebastian Vettel knows he shouldn’t have taken the left line the pair collided in Brazil.

The team have spoken with both Leclerc and Vettel at their HQ in Maranello, and after looking back at the footage, Leclerc concluded that he and Vettel need to be less “aggressive” to avoid a repeat.

“We looked at it, and I particularly looked at it to try and understand how we could have made the things better,” he said during the driver press conference in Abu Dhabi. “It was very unfortunate first of all because the touch was very small and it was a big drama after that, so that was a bit unlucky.

“As a team I think we should probably try to be a little less aggressive between each other for these things to not happen again. For the team it’s not good, for everybody who is supporting us it’s not good.”
