Ferrari is seriously inferior to its competitors in the first stage of Formula 1July 4, 2020
After Friday’s free races, Scuderia pilot Charles Leclair spoke about the difficulties in driving a car.
On Friday, two free rides started the first stage of Formula 1. The race will be held in Austrian Spielberg. The training did not bring much surprises – on the contrary, the advantage of the dominant Mercedes became even more tangible. Of the small surprises, we note the failure of the Ferrari team. Especially weak scarlet fireballs looked in the first part of the races.
Team pilot Charles Leclair shared his opinion on the new car. “The balance of the car is not bad, but we need to work hard in order to add,” says Leclair. “We lose in cornering speed, but in qualification we will try different options to make the car work well. I hope that through this we we can add. “
Another pilot of the team, four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel, spoke in the same spirit. Recall that last year, Charles Lecler fought for the victory at the Austrian Grand Prix until the last lap.
In the 2019 season, the Ferrari was very fast on straight lines, but it lacked downforce in corners, and on the slow city routes it was seriously inferior to competitors.
When creating the new SF1000, the main focus was on aerodynamics, but it was not possible to achieve a positive effect. The Ferrari leadership said they plan to bring global updates to the Hungarian Grand Prix.
