Ferraris, started 2nd and 3rd are 4th and 6th at the checkered flag, both behind Verstappen and Perez who respectively started from 10th and 11th.
An early pit stop fo Sainz (made to avoid the fight with Leclerc, and so troublesome choices) forces Ferrari to choose a strategy with Leclerc that wasn't even expected by Pirelli, going for a three stop, and mounting the wrong tyres, the hard compound to protect from Verstappen who was 6th at that point, despite the fact that those tyres weren't already working properly on the Alpine.

“Penso non siano problemi di strategia, ma di una macchina che oggi non andava”Binotto during the post race
