Charles Leclerc’s surprising fourth place in the time trial promised a lot for Ferrari – at least in light of the past weeks or months. However, at the Eifel Grand Prix in Formula 1, the Maranello Guard, who eventually scored points with his Monaco, who finished seventh at the Nürburgring, was unable to keep up.

After the race, Leclerc betrayed the left-handed rubber strategy played a significant role in their decline. “We suffered amazingly on the soft tires, which seriously affected our race,” he analyzed the problem. “Then we switched to the two-stop tactic, which I think was the right decision. The end of the race became tricky with the safety car, as our tires cooled down, but we managed to handle the situation quite well. ”

“I was ahead of the good ones in which I found pleasure, but seventh place was the maximum,” he summed up, then added about the safety car phase: “My opinion is divided: on the one hand I wanted to try soft tires, but looking at the first part of the race was a disaster. So in the end, we didn’t take the risk, we stayed on the medium tires. ”

Leclerc is currently eighth in the individual composite, while Ferrari is sixth among the constructors – the Italians are already 34 units behind the 5th-ranked Renault, and their advantage over the AlphaTauri has melted to 13 points when there are only six races left this year. season.
