An important result, sought after and strongly desired, which will have to push Ferrari to increase the pace in the appointments on the calendar that will anticipate the next summer break.
“Max Verstappen did a great race without committing the slightest flaw”, said the Manager from Faenza. “Carlos Sainz has made his best performance of the last two years, but at the moment Ferrari cannot fully exploit the power of his power-unit.”
“Despite the DRS, the Spaniard was unable to attack the Dutchman,” he continued. “From the point of view of the chassis, but also in terms of aerodynamics and engine, Red Bull is perfect, even superior to the competition. The only drawback of the weekend is the problem that slowed Sergio Perez ”.
Here instead the evaluations on Leclerc’s race: “With fifth place he limited the damage and took home a solid race. The 49 points behind Verstappen begin to weigh, especially against an opponent in such a big way. From here to the end, reliability will be the master because three engines are very few and there is still a long way to go.
