Ferrari’s Canadian Catastrophe: Unveiling the Engine Woes that Crippled Charles Leclerc’s Race



Charles Leclerc's engine troubles extensively uncovered during Ferrari's Canadian Grand Prix turmoil

Charles Leclerc and Ferrari have detailed the engine problem that disrupted his performance in the Canadian Grand Prix.

Ferrari has disclosed the extent to which a power unit issue affected Charles Leclerc in the F1 Canadian Grand Prix.

Aiming to bounce back from a disappointing qualifying session where both Ferrari cars were eliminated in Q2, Leclerc mentioned a problem with his engine in the initial laps of Sunday's chaotic and rainy race in Montreal.

Although they were losing time, Ferrari instructed Leclerc to continue pushing. An early decision to switch to slick tires did not pay off, leading to Leclerc's eventual retirement from the race.

After the race, the driver from Monaco explained that he was losing more than a second on the straight sections compared to his competitors. To address this problem, he had to adjust the engine settings ten times per lap.

Leclerc expressed his frustration to Sky Sports, stating, "I was losing 1.2 seconds on the straights, which was very irritating."

"And on top of that, I had to adjust the engine settings about 10 times each lap, making the race extremely frustrating as everyone overtook me on the straights."

"In the turns, your speed was impressive, and initially, the pace seemed solid despite being 1.2 seconds behind. However, due to the engine problem, there was nothing more we could have improved."

Ferrari's team boss, Fred Vasseur, revealed that Leclerc experienced a reduction of approximately 80 horsepower for roughly 15 laps because of the issue.

Vasseur clarified that they experienced an engine problem that resulted in a loss of approximately 80 horsepower for roughly 15 laps.

"We were expecting a red flag to give us a chance to reset and restart. Since no red flag was issued, we had to make a pit stop, which caused us to lose a lap. This ultimately ended Charles' race as he got lapped."

Carlos Sainz didn't complete the race after a collision with Williams driver Alex Albon, adding to a disastrous weekend for Ferrari as they fell further behind Red Bull in both championship standings.

“It’s been a difficult weekend from the start,” Vasseur commented. “I’m optimistic that we’ve faced all our challenges in this one race and that we’ll return to Spain in significantly better form.”

"We'll review and analyze what we could have done differently. We didn't anticipate this weekend to be so challenging, especially since our long-distance performance on Friday was strong. It's a long season, and there will be highs and lows, but I hope we don't experience too many lows like this."
