Dear Leo Turrini, what did you think when witnessing Hamilton’s mistake in Baku?
“That Achilles also had his famous weakness, the heel. After Verstappen’s misadventure, the world champion had the opportunity to extend the standings. Instead, he threw himself away. Out of greed! ”.
Would Schumi or Senna have made a similar mistake?
“Maybe when he was very young, at the beginning of his career. After, just not “.
Maybe this episode makes the Mercedes ace more human.
“Ah, sure. If you want it is also the demonstration that a driver always tries to win. But if you make a fool of yourself this passion turns into a boomerang “.
On the day fate betrayed Verstappen …
“Exact. Verstappen’s tears in Baku are a photograph of an injustice. The flying Dutchman had already won and would have taken off in the world championship. If nothing else, Hamilton’s own goal leaves him at the top ”.
And Red Bull still won with Perez.
“The Mexican is mad as a horse. When he was a student of the Ferrari Academy, he raced in F1 with Sauber and once in Malaysia he almost rammed Alonso, who drove the Red. I met Perez after three days at the restaurant in Maranello. I asked him: are you crazy? Answer: no, I’m Perez ”.
How do you judge Leclerc’s fourth place?
“In line with the value of the Cavallino in the race. Qualifications are valid up to a certain point, that is, for one lap. There is still work to be done, but Ferrari is sending some weak signals. Ah, let me compliment Vettel. He’s a nice person, it was nice to see him back on the podium after a long time ”.
Meanwhile, Rossi fell again …
“Sorry and not from today. You know my thesis. A champion has the right to choose the moment of farewell for himself. Notwithstanding that my model remains my friend Alberto Tomba: he won the last slalom of the World Cup in which he participated and stopped, saying he didn’t intend to compete for a placement “.
Instead of a placement, Mancini’s Italy cannot settle for the European Championship.
“The enthusiasm surrounding the national team is beautiful. After all, it is Conte ct’s since 2016 that the Azzurri have not played such an important tournament “.
And where can they go?
“I don’t see a favorite team. We can also imagine winning, why not? “
Who will be the key man for the blue fortunes?
“Raspadori, the Sassuolo boy”.
“He’s a neighbor of mine, let me overdo it. And then we all need a fairytale! ”.
