Charles Leclerc needs a miracle to become champion

“It is important for us to turn the page, to look forward. In Hungary it will be hot again, and the race will again depend on tire management, wear and warm-up – the same as at Le Castellet,” said Mattia Binotto, Ferrari team principal.

Ferrari is second in the Constructors’ Championship with 314 points – Red Bull has 396 and leads the way. However, the Italian team is collecting recent setbacks – in the last seven races, Charles Leclerc retired three times, including this Sunday’s French GP, driving alone when he was leading.

For Binotto, Leclerc’s accident in France was a “legitimate mistake”. The manager denied the possibility of a problem with the car’s accelerator, as happened to the Monegasque driver in the Austrian GP. “There was no problem with the throttle, nothing to do with what happened in Austria,” he said. “What happened is Charles’s legitimate fault. Things happen,” he added.

Lewis Hamilton spoke about the controversy. The Briton even said he was “saddened” by the Monegasque’s omission, as Ferrari prove they have a car capable of winning the 2022 title on their hands.

“It’s great to see Ferrari’s speed this year,” Hamilton told the media while still in France. “I’m sad for Charles, who has been doing a great job, like Carlos [Sainz]. But it’s not easy to have that speed and performance and continue like that,” Mercedes #44 said. “It’s hard work, and I feel for the whole team because I know what it is. But they are a great team and they will continue to work hard,” added Hamilton.
