The series of breakdowns surrounding Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc is not abating. Due to five unfortunate races, the Monegasque has finally lost touch in the fight for the world title and thus plays Red Bull into the cards.
Austrians are grateful for the gift: Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc loses after five miserable races in a row (Barcelona, Monaco, Baku, Montreal and Silverstone) in the fight for the Formula 1 World Championship. The 79-year-old told RTL in an interview that Red Bull adviser Helmut Marko “thankfully accepted” a gift.
Short, compact, clear
Fatal decisions prevent victory: “It’s fair to say that Leclerc wasn’t where he could have been in the last five races,” emphasizes the former racing driver, referring to “tactically questionable decisions” and “technical defects” by Ferrari . Most recently, the 24-year-old, who was leading both the Monaco and Silverstone races, missed out on a potential win due to fatal mistakes made by his racing team.
Red Bull confident for the rest of the season: The Monegasse is now 62 points behind Championship leader Max Verstappen. Even if Helmut Marko knows that Ferrari will not continue to give gifts to Red Bull in the long run, the Austrian is “confident for the rest of the season”.
