Scuderia Ferrari leaves Brazil with the worst possible result: no points and a clash between Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc which resulted in a collision that meant both of them retired from the race at the world-famous Interlagos circuit.
Lap 66. The incident that put the two SF90s out of the running took place on lap 66, six laps after the restart following the Safety Car period following Valtteri Bottas’ retirement. The top five were all very close at that point and at the first corner, Leclerc passed Vettel to go fourth. But the German tucked in behind his team-mate to try and repass him. On the straight before turn 3, the two men collided and both had to retire. A very unsatisfactory end to the penultimate race of the season.

Sebastian Vettel:

"The summary of the day is that we did not finish a race in which we could have got a good result. It's a shame about the collision between us, especially for the team as a whole, given that both cars were in the points and considering how much work everyone puts in, both at the track and back in Maranello."

"From my point of view, the race was going well, even if I think that Max (Verstappen) was uncatchable today. Now we must just focus on the final race of the season where will try and bring home the best possible result."

Speaking in the TV pen after the race, Vettel said: "I didn't have much space on the right and I obviously had a better run out of Turn 2 and tried to pass in Turn 3, that was it. I don't have so much to say, I think it was pretty clear."

When asked if he felt he was not to blame, the four-time world champion said: "The bottom line is that both of us didn't finish the race and today we could have had a better result - that's it. It could have been a much better day."

Both drivers visited the stewards after the incident, but no penalties were handed down as it was felt neither driver was "wholly or predominantly to blame".
