‘Unbelievable’ Ferrari chief turns into Jurgen Klopp with outrageous excuse for Charles Leclerc’s US GP disqualificationMartin Brundle questioned why other cars were not tested given half of the checked cars were illegal

FERRARI sporting director Diego Ioverno cited wind as one reason why Charles Leclerc was disqualified from last weekend’s US Grand Prix. Their race results were canned after the planks on the floor of their cars were found to have failed to meet F1 regulations for the minimum thickness allowed. Ride height can heavily impact aerodynamic performance, but cars have to be a certain height to meet safety standards, which Hamilton and Leclerc’s cars failed to do. “It means that from that moment onwards you cannot touch the car any more. “Bumpiness is a difficult topic for drivers and for cars, in the past almost everyone failed the suspension and failed the chassis. “We knew it would have been tricky and this is the reason why we also lifted the car throughout FP1, and from our consideration it should have been OK.”.
