Ferrari drivers Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel have cleared the air after a Brazilian Grand Prix collision that put both of them out of the penultimate race of the Formula One season, the team said.

Team boss Mattia Binotto said after the race at Interlagos that there would be a review with the drivers at the Maranello factory to go through what went on and how to prevent any recurrence.

"Since last Sunday Mattia and the drivers have spoken every day, as they would normally do anyway, so there was no official summit nor video conference," a Ferrari spokeswoman said.

The collision between the young charger and a four times world champion, who have been battling for supremacy this season, provided a major talking point at Interlagos.

"They know that silly mistakes are still silly mistakes. What happened today is a shame for the team," Binotto said at the time.
