After having a difficult first period in terms of accounting, Charles Leclerc however had responded, looking for a way of regularity and victory, especially in Austria. But last Sunday, in Le Castellet, the theater of the F1 Grand-Prix de France, the interested participants stumbled again, allowing the victory that seemed to him promised. A testing error that cost him dearly in the championship, the Monegasque now counts 63 points behind the Dutchman, Max Verstappen.
F1: Ferrari, Leclerc, of course it’s a mess to win
When reliability or strategic errors are not involved, at Ferrari, it is the drivers who miss out! Also, with so much on offer for the current two strongest driver teams in F1, the outcome of this 2022 world championship should leave the reds with plenty of regrets. Even if, of course, nothing is finished. All that is needed is a victory for Charles Leclerc next weekend in Hungary and the Red Bull driver’s departure, in hopes of a rebirth for the Scuderia. But in Budapest, it is hard to imagine Max Verstappen missing out, especially since his supporters will be many there …
On the other hand, behind Leclerc, other threats are coming again. First with Sergio Perez, fourth in the Formula 1 French Grand Prix and now seven points behind Charles. But also, Carlos Sainz, who is behind his teammate by 26 lengths. Behind, Mercedes still holds respectable positions, Lewis Hamilton continues to grab George Russell, thanks to his good second place at Paul-Ricard.
