“We expect a stronger Red Bull”
powerless against a Red Bull which looks more and more like a real fighter plane, Charles Leclerc can only hope for a combination of circumstances to impose itself on Monza this week-end. ” It will be quite a difficult weekend, at least on paper. We expect a stronger Red Bull. It is not a circuit whose characteristics are suitable for our car. But we hope to have a good surprise and exceed expectations. Because we are faster on the corners than on the straights and on a circuit like this, that might not be enough. However, this year has been marked by many positive and negative surprises and we will do everything to exceed our expectations. » finds Leclerc in comments relayed by Nextgen-Auto.
“We seem to be a little faster in the corners”
In contrast, Charles Leclerc not sure what to expect from mercedes. It highlights the irregularity of Silver Arrows. ” If we compare with Red Bull in particular, because it’s a bit more consistent team throughout the year, their main strength this year is straight-line speed. We seem to be a bit quicker in the corners, but on circuits like this it’s not enough to recoup the advantage they have on the straights. Compared to Mercedes? it’s hard to make predictions for this weekend, they had ups and downs » concedes the pilot Ferrari.
Leclerc denies for Binotto
More in the odor of holiness after his many errors, Mattia Binotto would be in the hot seat, which strongly denies Charles Leclerc who flies to the support of his sports director. ” There are always rumors around a Formula 1 team and especially with Ferrari, but I think what is important in these times is not to be distracted by what is being said. We are very united as a team and I think we have to continue like this. We have shown that we have been excellent from last year to this year with this kind of performance and we must continue in this direction. I haven’t heard that particular rumor but obviously we have to focus on our own work ” spear Charles Leclerc.
