Ferrari hoped the Brazilian Grand Prix would bring some relief after poor performances and even accusations of cheating from opponents.
Instead, the Formula 1 team ended the weekend with a collision involving its two drivers as they fought for only fourth place at Interlagos.
Sebastian Vettel looked strong starting from second in Sunday’s race. Charles Leclerc, who began from 14th position because of an engine penalty, jumped to sixth in only 11 laps in Sao Paulo.
It was too good to last.
The two Ferrari drivers faced off on Lap 66 after a safety car restart, and contact between the cars gave Vettel a right-rear puncture, while Leclerc had a broken suspension. Both failed to finish.
“It is very disappointing for the team,” Vettel said after the race.
Leclerc said he wanted to see footage of the crash before reaching any conclusions. “It was a great race before that. But we can’t draw anything positive from this race,” he said.
Their exit allowed Red Bull’s Max Verstappen, the winner in Brazil, to jump to third place in the driver’s championship. He is 11 points ahead of fourth-place Leclerc with only the Abu Dhabi GP on Dec. 1 to go. Vettel is 30 points behind Verstappen and cannot claim a top three spot any longer.
Ferrari will also finish the season far behind Mercedes in the constructors championship.
Earlier this month at the United States GP, Leclerc finished almost a minute behind race winner Valtteri Bottas of Mercedes. Vettel retired early.
After that race, Verstappen suggested that Ferrari had been “cheating”. The Red Bull driver said on Dutch TV that the Italian team’s performance dipped at Austin because of a FIA directive on fuel flow systems.
Ferrari boss Mattia Binotto said the directive had no impact on the team’s engine.
After the Brazilian GP Binotto said "both of them (Vettel and Leclerc) have got at least a small percentage of responsibility" for the clash.
"At the end, they were free to fight," Binotto said.

If you love gadgets and are tech savvy enough to feel the need to stay up to date at all times, then you are already considering smartwatches. Even traditional watch companies like Fossil are beginning to manufacture these, so why should you stay back from putting one on your wrist? But with any hefty purchase, a little pros and cons list can’t hurt. Read on to find out if smartwatches are all that they say they are!
First and most obvious on the ‘pros’ list goes: the mobility. As if your smartphone wasn’t ‘mobile’ enough, just like the wires now they have you losing the whole device too! Smartwatches let you not just check the time but also your email and social media notifications all on one small circle display right on your hands.
With the rise of bike rides in the city, even bluetooth earphones have been left behind with the arrival of smartwatches. The watch itself vibrates to let you know of an incoming call so you no longer have to miss hearing a ringtone or miss the vibration in any hustle or bustle, and can decide to receive and talk right then and there.
If you are a person who travels a lot, especially in a two wheeler where smartphone mounts are not reliable, a smartwatch can show you the map right at your convenience.
Smartwatches analyze your sleep data, and keep a count of your steps every day, making it an interesting method of tracking your health and remaining fit.
Unlike a normal watch, you can change the dial or watch face every day to avoid redundancy and stay stylish.
However, if you enjoy long conversations with your friends, or make long business relevant calls, smartwatch cannot serve you well with that low volume.
You can only check your social media notifications or fitness statistics for so long, with a battery that does not last as long as a smartphone would. This remains the biggest on the ‘cons’ list for smartwatches. Smartwatches typically can be used 1-2 days after a full charge and some watches do not even last for a day.
Even though smartwatches are able to provide you tonnes of data regarding your exercise and fitness, many smartwatch tests shows that the data is not 100% accurate and not even 80% sometimes. The steps calculator and heart rate sensors are not known for accuracy in a smartwatch. Hopefully the brands are working on improving the sensor feedback and analyzing the data. And if fitness tracking is your primary concern, there are definitely more suitable options for that.
They say you can watch movies and listen to music on a smartwatch, but the small display might make that a little difficult for you.
Other factors such as getting outdated quickly, being expensive, and bands getting damaged through constant water interaction, does not make the smartwatch a must-have.
Having read all that, you can finally ask yourself, are you being smart with your smartwatch?

Twitter’s new ban on political ads will cover appeals for votes, solicitations for campaign contributions and any political content. But the company quickly acknowledged Friday that it expects to make mistakes as individuals and groups look for loopholes.
Twitter is defining political content to include any ad that references a candidate, political party, government official, ballot measure, or legislative or judicial outcome. The ban also applies to all ads — even non-political ones — from candidates, political parties and elected or appointed government officials.
However, Twitter is allowing ads related to social causes such as climate change, gun control and abortion. People and groups running such ads won’t be able to target those ads down to a user’s ZIP code or use political categories such as “conservative” or “liberal.” Rather, targeting must be kept broad, based on a user’s state or province, for instance.
News organizations will be exempt so they can promote stories that cover political issues. While Twitter has issued guidelines for what counts as a news organization — single-issue advocacy outlets don’t qualify, for instance — it’s unclear if this will be enough prevent partisan websites from promoting political content.
Twitter announced its worldwide ban on political ads Oct. 30, but didn’t release details until Friday. The policy, which goes into effect next Friday, is in stark contrast to Facebook’s approach of allowing political ads, even if they contain false information. Facebook has said it wants to provide politicians with a "level playing field" for communication and not intervene when they speak, regardless of what they're saying.
Response to Twitter’s ban has been strong and mixed, with critics questioning the company’s ability to enforce the new policy given its poor history banning hate speech and abuse from its service. The company acknowledges it will make mistakes but says it’s better to start addressing the issue now rather than wait until all the kinks are worked out.
Aside from ongoing concerns about foreign elections interference, the political advertising issue rose to the forefront in recent months as Twitter, along with Facebook and Google, refused to remove a misleading video ad from President Donald Trump’s campaign that targeted Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.
In response, Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren, another presidential hopeful, ran her own ad on Facebook taking aim at Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. The ad claimed — admittedly falsely to make its point — that Zuckerberg endorsed Trump for re-election.
Over the past several weeks, Facebook has been pressed to change its policy. But it was Twitter instead that jumped in with its bombshell ban.
Drew Margolin, a Cornell University communications professor who studies social networks, said Twitter’s broad ban is a reflection that “vetting is not realistic and is potentially unfair.”
He said a TV network might be in a position to vet all political ads, but Twitter and Facebook cannot easily do so. While their reliance on automated systems makes online ads easier and cheaper to run, Margolin said it also makes them an “attractive target” for spreading misinformation.
Political advertising makes up a small sliver of Twitter's overall revenue. The company does not break out specific figures each quarter, but said political ad spending for the 2018 midterm election was less than $3 million. It reported $824 million in third-quarter revenue.
Because of this, the ban is unlikely to have a big effect on overall political advertising, where television still accounts for the majority of the money spent. In digital ads, Google and Facebook dominate.
Unlike Facebook, which has weathered most of the criticism, Google has been relatively quiet on its political ads policy. It has taken a similar stance to Facebook and does not review whether political ads tell the truth.
Twitter, Facebook and Google already take steps to prevent political manipulation by verifying the identities of some political advertisers — measures prompted by the furor over Moscow's interference. But the verifying systems, which rely on both humans and automated systems, have not been perfect.
