During the post-race press conference, which Lewis Hamilton missed because he graduated for the 7th time World Champion during the Turkish Grand Prix, he had his own one, Sebastian Vettel was asked how he thought the organizational management by Laurent Mekies this weekend. Mattia Binotto was in fact not present in Istanbul because in Maranello it was necessary to work on the new 2021 engine, on which there would seem to be excellent news, and consequently Mekies has taken on the role that Binotto usually plays.
The German, fresh from a spectacular race, replied: “Well you know I think we have gained the most points since the beginning of the season this weekend and Mattia was not there, so we could try to leave him at home also for next races! – Sebastian joked – No joking aside, I don’t think there is a connection, I don’t believe in this kind of thing. “
