Leclerc was even surprised that Ferrari was agile in Monaco

Jakarta (medialnews) – It was as if Charles Leclerc did not believe that the Ferrari SF21 he was driving on Thursday was the fastest in the second free practice of the Monaco Grand Prix.

Leclerc started the first day with a gearbox problem that prevented him from completing FP1.

But the home driver got up in FP2, scoring a best time of 1: 11.684 ahead of his teammate, Carlos Sainz, who was 0.112 seconds away from Ferrari becoming dominant in the afternoon, even beating the Red Bull champions and Mercedes teams .

Only the two Ferrari cars managed to score a time in the one minute and 11 second range that day.

“I was quite surprised that the result was like this, because especially here it was important to do as many laps as possible, and with the problems we had in FP1 I only did four laps,” said Leclerc as quoted by the official Formula. . 1 website.

“However, I feel relieved with this car in FP2 and can score that lap.”

Ferrari may be the best for Thursday’s practice session, but Leclerc is still wary of his rivals ahead of Saturday’s qualifying as he keeps an eye on both his first pole position at home and his first appearance in Q3.

“There is still a small margin,” continued Leclerc.

But on the other hand, I think Mercedes and Red Bull have more margins than we do, so we shouldn’t get too carried away.

“I want to wait until Saturday,” he said. “For now it looks good, but too good to be true, so we’ll wait and see.

“On Saturday we will know exactly where we are in qualifying and then we will start racing.”
