Sebastian Vettel says he has “zero tolerance” for a mistake made by FIA race director Michael Masi during qualifying for the Turkish Grand Prix, which saw the second session get underway while a recovery crane was still in one of the run-off areas.
The incident had alarming similarities to the build-up to Jules Bianchi’s accident at the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix, when he hit a crane that had been out to recover a crashed car – the same situation in Turkey.
“I think we are all human, mistakes happen, but this mistake has zero tolerance,” Vettel said. “So I think we’re all well aware and I hope and am very confident it will not happen in the future again. But we will for sure talk about this and disclose the reasons why.”
