Ferrari Faces Setbacks Despite F1 Upgrade Leclerc Says

Leclerc Admits Ferrari’s Upgrades Limit Performance

04/07/2024

Charles Leclerc highlights unforeseen drawbacks as Ferrari’s latest F1 upgrades fail to deliver, underscoring the unpredictability of racing enhancements.

Charles Leclerc was heartened to see his teammate Carlos Sainz capitalize on the collision between Max Verstappen and Lando Norris, allowing Ferrari to secure a podium finish and gather some points in Austria.

Leclerc revealed that he and Sainz were using alternative settings on the SF-24 as the Maranello-based team strives to understand its developments.

“Carlos’ podium helped the team score points for the constructors,” said Leclerc.

“And we managed to collect a lot of data as we had two cars with quite different settings, even though I didn’t feel very comfortable.”

Sainz emphasized that Ferrari’s updates reintroduced high-speed bouncing, and Leclerc admitted this has triggered restrictions in the usable settings.

“It is true that the update package brought the expected load, we can see it from the data, but there are unexpected limitations in return that we need to analyze and try to overcome.”

“In F1, there are few coincidences, since we introduced this package, we have made a step forward, following the numbers.”

“But now we need to resolve these limitations, as we have struggled for two weekends.”

However, Leclerc is not optimistic that Ferrari can find a solution to improve things at Silverstone this weekend, adding, “We still haven’t found a solution to improve things.”
