Leclerc doesn't see update helping everywhere: Definitely have a problem there

Charles Leclerc managed to achieve a nice second place for Ferrari at the Austrian Grand Prix last Sunday, but that result disguised the bad position the team now finds itself in. During the free practice sessions for next weekend the reality seemed to drop again.

Of course lap times on Fridays don't say everything by a long shot, but since most of the drivers sat down for a while this time because of the threat of rain on Saturday, the result is more representative than normal. Leclerc didn't make it past ninth place, although he was positive about the update the team brought.

Update does not solve one problem

"I think it has potential. We just have to keep working to realize the full potential", said the Ferrari driver after the second free practice. He then immediately appoints the Achilles heel of the SF1000.

The Ferrari for 2020 is in fact quite a bit short of top speed compared to the previous car. "We certainly have problems there. That's why it was so difficult to overtake during the race last week, but we will have to work with what we have at the moment".
