No consequences for constant Ferrari defeats

After yet another all-round Ferrari defeat, Charles Leclerc has reiterated his claim that winning the world championship this year will be “tough”. “The Red Bull is the fastest car at the moment, especially in terms of race pace,” Leclerc said late on Sunday. “Mercedes also seems to have gained in race-pace performance, so this title looks tough.”. “On paper, it’s not our best track, unfortunately,” Leclerc said. The most galling aspect for Ferrari is that an increasingly farcical streak of strategy and pitstop errors is also continuing, whilst Leclerc admits that his car has been “struggling a bit more in race pace” over the most recent string of races. “Now Mercedes is also in the fight and they are very quick,” he said. But for the 2022 title, Binotto admits the 109-point deficit is “huge if you look at how many races are left”. “No, that’s not the reason, although there have been some rumours,” he said.
