Ralf Schumacher believes Sebastian Vettel was chiefly to blame for the collision with Charles Leclerc at the Brazilian Grand Prix but says Ferrari must focus on mending the damaged relationship between the drivers. reports citing GPfans that Ferrari was left to lament a first double DNF since the 2017 Singapore GP when Vettel and Leclerc collided on the back straight at Interlagos in a battle for fourth place.

Schumacher understood Vettel's intentions but said he would have to hold his hands up and accept the blame for the incident, with both drivers summoned to Maranello for explanations by team principal Mattia Binotto.

"It was very close and exciting between the two up to the collision," said Sky Germany analyst Schumacher.

"Sebastian probably expected Charles to be further away, but of course he also wanted to close the line a bit for the next corner, so that his opponent cannot counter inside. And then it happened.

"Therefore, I would say: If you can speak of guilt at all, then that is more likely with Sebastian, logically. But the bigger problem than the crash is now the relationship between the two teammates. It will be a huge task for the team."
