Juan Pablo Montoya: Ferrari handing Red Bull victories with issues

Ferrari are guilty of handing wins to Red Bull this season, that is the view of former Formula 1 driver Juan Pablo Montoya.

The Scuderia had a top start to the campaign this year but have seen their leads in both the championship become deficits, thanks to a mixture of reliability issues, mistakes and sheer bad luck.

Indeed, that is a concoction that does not lead to championships and the Prancing Horse will know that, as we head towards the midway point of the campaign.

Speaking to Vegas Insider, Montoya said that Ferrari have been handing Red Bull wins at times, and that needs to be addressed:

“As a team they’re not executing as good as they need to be. That’s what it really comes to.

“You can say half of the wins of Red Bull have been given away by Ferrari, not won by Red Bull.

“While Red Bull has won some races by performance, some others is like – ‘really, did you throw this one away as well.’

“You’re watching it and you go, how, really? And you can see it coming. I don’t know they’ve got such a fast car and they’re afraid of screwing up, they’re like ‘aaahhhh'”

Ferrari will know this all themselves, of course, and hopefully they’ll manage to get their act together soon to breathe life back into this 2022 world championship.
