Australian Grand Prix: Charles Leclerc beats Max Verstappen in practice as Mercedes struggles continue

Leclerc ended the session 0.245 seconds ahead of the Dutchman, who appeared to have the potential to go faster had it not been for traffic and some errors. “For the final run, we changed the car around a bit and I felt a lot happier. It is not so comfortable but I’m not here to have a comfortable car I am here to have a fast car. As at the last race in Jeddah, Red Bull are running their car in lower-drag configuration than Ferrari. The Dutchman suffered particularly on his qualifying simulation run when he had to back out of a fast lap at the 155mph Turns Nine and 10 when cars were running slowly on the racing line ahead of him.
