Leclerc annoyed after a new low: Unfortunately, this is the reality

For Ferrari, just like at Spa-Francorchamps, it was another dramatic Saturday. This time the result was even worse, because Sebastian Vettel didn't even make it through Q1. Charles Leclerc did, but his 13th place is not something to be proud of either.

"In the end, we expected this this weekend," says Leclerc in front of the Sky Sports camera. "We knew Spa and Monza would be difficult for us. Probably the two worst tracks for us and we'll probably have another one later this year."

From Mugello it should go a little better with Ferrari

The Monegasque is probably referring to the new layout that will be used on the Bahrain circuit. He is therefore resigning himself to the new reality that Ferrari will not be able to compete at the front on circuits that require a lot of power. Nevertheless, he hopes for some improvement in the meantime.

"It doesn't feel right to do a good lap and it's only P13, but I try to do my job and get the most out of the car. It is the reality for us, unfortunately and hopefully from Mugello we will be better than here. But we have to keep working. I hope that from next week we will see light at the end of the tunnel."
