**”Ferrari Faces Unforeseen Struggles: Leclerc and Sainz Puzzled by Double Q2 Exit in Canadian GP”**

What caused Ferrari's issues? The drivers are perplexed by the unexpected elimination in Q2.

Ferrari teammates Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz were stunned by their surprising Q2 exit in Canada.

Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz were unable to account for Ferrari’s dismal showing in the F1 Canadian Grand Prix qualifying session.

Following their recent triumph in Monaco, Ferrari came to Montreal with high hopes of contending for another win at a track that, theoretically, was well-suited to their 2024 vehicle.

However, Ferrari was unable to secure a spot in the top 10 during the qualifying session, with both Leclerc and his teammate Sainz being eliminated in Q2, finishing in 11th and 12th positions respectively.

"We're going to examine everything," Leclerc mentioned to Sky F1. "It's clear that I'm disappointed about not making it past Q2, and we'll investigate the reasons behind it."

"I believe our main problem was our lack of speed. Whenever the track was dry, we couldn't perform well at all this weekend, and we need to investigate why."

"We're still trying to figure it out. We need to investigate further because we've been off the pace since the third practice session."

When questioned about the car's performance, Leclerc said, "It feels terrible. There's absolutely no grip and the tires never seemed prepared. That's the main issue."

Both Ferrari drivers opted for their sole set of fresh soft tyres at the beginning of Q2, as the team expected rain to arrive later in the session.

However, in the absence of the anticipated rain, Leclerc and Sainz were forced to use worn soft tires during the optimal track conditions.

Sainz agreed with his teammate's remarks and believed that Ferrari should have reserved their set of fresh tires for the conclusion of Q2.

The Spaniard mentioned that if they had executed everything flawlessly, particularly by using the new tire at the end of Q2 instead of the beginning and having a smoother final corner, reaching Q3 might have been achievable today.

"The truth is, the competition was extremely close throughout the day. This meant that any small mistake would result in being eliminated in Q2, which is definitely not where Ferrari aims to be."

"If you don't execute these tasks flawlessly and lack a speedy vehicle, that's when you run into trouble."

In an interview with Sky Sports F1, Ferrari team boss Fred Vasseur remarked, "Our speed was satisfactory yesterday in both wet and dry conditions."

"We had some difficulty getting the tires to perform well for Turn 1, as we are losing over half of our time difference at that corner compared to this morning."

"It's a close competition. Ultimately, Perez ended up in 16th place, and just a fraction of a second can make the difference. Carlos was three-tenths of a second quicker than Charles at the last corner before he made an error. That's the way it goes, but we should be happy that the contest is so close."

"Being in 11th or 12th place definitely doesn't bring joy."
