Vettel got wrong tyres at pit stop

Sebastian Vettel was given the wrong tyres at his pit stop in Monaco and RBR had to change its strategy thereafter.

Vettel was supposed to get another set of supersofts but due to a radio blunder he was given softs instead – and in the confusion he lost a few seconds.

“We had an issue at the first stop where the radio seemed to get jammed,”  Christian Horner told this blog. “And the communication from the pit wall upstairs didn’t reach the guys downstairs. So there was some confusion over the tyres to go on the Seb’s car. We were looking at going on another set of options and he drove out of the pitlane with another set of primes on.”

After that the team had to adjust its strategy and eventually settled on a one-stop. Luck seems to be riding with Seb at the moment…
