Leclerc knows what to improve after first day of practice

After a first day of practice in which he hasn't truly been able to show what he's capable of, Ferrari's Charles Leclerc say both him and the team know what to improve to get a quick car on the grid come Saturday in qualifying.

Leclerc did finish third in FP1 but was beaten by his teammate Sebastian Vettel. In FP2, however, he barely cracked the top ten, with Ferrari sandbagging according to many. 

"We've carried out our program so we were happy with FP1," the Monegasque told the Italian version of Motorsport.com.

"Less happy with the short runs in FP2 but we know what to change and hopefully we'll get it right tomorrow."

All in all, despite putting any flashy lap times on the board, Leclerc concluded that he's still "very satisfied" with his work on Friday, which included a short lawn-mowing moment in FP2.
