MUST-SEE: Watch how close Ferrari came to disaster in Australia race start
The Australian Grand Prix didn’t go according to plan for Ferrari, with the team missing the Melbourne podium for the first time since 2014 as Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc could only finish a distant fourth and fifth. But it could have been much, much worse for the Scuderia, as the video above shows...
Going through Turns 1 and 2 at the start, the Ferrari duo came agonisingly close to wiping each other out, with a tell-tale puff of white smoke clearly visible from the onlooking Max Verstappen's perspective as Leclerc’s front wing touches the left-rear tyre of Vettel’s car.
Not only did they avoid an accident, Vettel also escaped a puncture - talk about a close call!
