Leclerc sees small gap to Red Bull: Have faith in it.

While Sebastian Vettel still has difficulty driving his Ferrari, teammate Charles Leclerc has it pretty easy. Of course, driving in the middle is not something Leclerc prefers to do over the long term, but overall the Monegasque was satisfied with the first two free practice sessions.

Leclerc does not think his Italian car is 'finished' yet for Saturday and Sunday, but it's getting closer: "Once again it went better than expected. Our performance in the qualifying runs was good, even though there is still work to be done. I am confident that we can get the best out of it tomorrow. And if I can fine-tune the car, as I plan to do, I think we can also get a good result on Sunday," Leclerc said to Motorsport.com.

Fear of the long-runs

If we look at the recent performance of Ferrari this season, we see that the Italian team has largely lost the speed it has in qualifying in the race. Does Leclerc also have that fear of next Sunday?: "As far as the race simulation is concerned, I am satisfied. Of course we have a lot of data from this winter, but it is not easy to compare it with the data collected today under such different conditions".
