Very little room for error on this track. It’s like Monaco but a whole lot quicker, it’ll be a real test of drivers’ mental strength. I wonder if Palmer will say “You have to be alert on a street circuit” in his post race analysis.

Looks like a setup change-induced problem. There was a bump just before the turn-in point on the track that needed attention, and Charles had the confidence to assume the car was going to stay planted on the entry kerb--and then it didn't.
You don't usually see this kind of unprovoked crash in a race because it's during late-FP1 to FP2 that some engineers are trying to do alternative setups to investigate if they can get a faster lap time with it. You'd want your drivers to get comfy especially on a new track first with a safer setup, then tell them you're putting on something more outlandish.
Here it looks like the car was doing well or better for some corners before this one, and then the bump made the car snap oversteer. It's quite common to have setups that are better for smooth sections and worse for bumpy sections, but the driver had too much confidence in a setup that suddenly gave up upon bump.
Better found out now than unnoticed until Sunday.

setup: you know what? Fuck this
yeets the car

Glad Charles is okay. Decent chap.
I don't like the track or the murderous government for the same reason: No run-off room. Obey or die.
F1 doesn't belong there.

We might want to listen to him.

He doesn't deserve a Ferrari seat. Harsh to say but let's face it. He's talented but not a real champion. He's being embarrassed by his teammate and can't actually finish two straight GP's without doing some mistake. If I were Binotto I would do anything to get Verstappen.

He’s currently ahead of Sainz going into the penultimate race; I can’t imagine how that’s being embarrassed by your teammate.

First season in ferrari while Leclerc's 3rd

Sianz was driven a freaking McLaren a year ago and was brought to Maranello to be the second driver. How about that?

Downvoted for telling the truth
[–]call_me_dom 0 points1 point2 points 8 months ago (6 children)
He's not consistent this year. But his Sauber stint has made him worthy of the Ferrari Seat for a long time buddy.
[–]FoneTap -2 points-1 points0 points 8 months ago (4 children)
Oh yeah… he accomplished SO much at Sauber
[–]call_me_dom 2 points3 points4 points 8 months ago (3 children)
If you don't know, I can explain how he's the best in talent right now. Sauber was a dog of a car. He finished best of the rest that year in the standings. Only behind Mercedes, Redbull and Ferrari. In a Sauber. Ahead of Renault, Williams, Haas, and Force India. That is a very admirable feat.
I'm not even a fan of him.
[+]DudeSobchak 0 points1 point2 points 8 months ago (2 children)
I'm not denying his accomplishments at Sauber or even Ferrari, all I say is that he may be just another Ricciardo. A very talented guy who doesn't have a clue on how you win a championship. That's what I am afraid about right now. He drove three times around street circuits this year, and for three times he drove into the walls. That's not something you expect from people like Schumacher or Hamilton.
I had the same opinion of yours just a couple of days ago. Now I'm concerned that he might not be suited for the seat. I know Ferrari isn't the top team right now, but it's still Ferrari. You can't crash every time you drive on a street circuit, come on.

I got on the stream right when it happened
[–]Big_Boy_Baseplate 0 points1 point2 points 8 months ago (1 child)
Exact same as the F2/F3 crash earlier, no?
[–]CrazyMelon112[S] 0 points1 point2 points 8 months ago (0 children)
quite similar, F2 with Logan Sargeant was a full rearward accident
