Formula 1 | Alesi on the fight for the title: “Leclerc will still have the chances of him”

Despite the 49 points that separate Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc, Jean Alesi did not believe in Ferrari’s conquest of the title.

Interviewed by the Italian press, the transalpine looked at the glass half full of the “complex” situation that the Maranello team is experiencing, specifying how this championship, which has just reached the “turning point”, can still reserve surprises and twists, especially as regards the reliability and replacement of components. A fundamental condition that must push the Cavallino to give 100%, starting from the next appointment scheduled in 15 days at Silverstone.

“Leclerc is right to show cautious optimism for the world championship”, the Frenchman told Corriere della Sera. “We are in front of a very tight championship and one that promises to be uncertain for all the substitutions that the teams will have to face. Everyone will be at the limit with the new components and technical trouble will come for every team. We are not even halfway through the season and therefore there will be opportunities for Ferrari to make up for lost time. This could already happen at Silverstone, a track that historically rewards champions ”.
