Why Vettel is closer to a ban than you think

A disastrous weekend for Sebastian Vettel included a penalty for rejoining the track in an unsafe manner, with a race-ruining 10 second stop-go penalty and a further three penalty points added to his licence. In contrast, his young team-mate Charles Leclerc grabbed pole and sealed a win under heavy pressure from the Mercedes of Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas, in front of the Tifosi. With the additional penalty points, Vettel is now one step closer to a race ban. We look at what is next for Ferrari’s supposed number one, and what could happen if he does incur the stewards wrath once again.
