Charles Leclerc had it bad at the end of the Miami Grand Prix on Sunday evening, during which he snagged a painful 7th place.
After a weekend full of promise in Baku, where he took pole position and a podium in the race, Charles Leclerc lived through complicated days in Miami. Having made a mistake in qualifying on Saturday, the Monegasque driver started in 7th place on the grid on Sunday and suffered a lot to maintain this same position at the finish.
After the race, Charles Leclerc struggled to hide his disappointment, putting pressure on Ferrari in the process, as the Imola Grand Prix loomed in two weeks. “We really need to find something, launched the Monegasque at the microphone of Canal +. During the first stint in mediums, I had absolutely no grip, but really no grip! We are not in the right (operating) window for medium tires at the start of the stint. »
“It’s not too normal”
“In hard, it’s a little better but good… A little better but still very far from those with whom you want to fight, he lamented. We need to work on this point. We have a car which is very inconsistent in the race, very difficult to put it to the limit. On top of that, I was hitting the ground a lot in fast corners. I don’t think it’s a fault of the car but there is something we need to address. It was not a problem yesterday (Saturday) nor the days before. It’s not too normal. »In two weeks, on his land, the Scuderia will necessarily be eagerly awaited.
