The news was already on the air as of yesterday, but now comes the official confirmation: Charles Leclerc is also replacing the turbo in his F1-75 and at the Canadian GP he will start from last place at the start. After the credibility problems they suffered in Baku, Azerbaijan, the pilot from Monaco and Maranello’s team chose to change the fourth energy unit, thus passing to a double penalty for the Canadian weekend. Engine replacement for Sainz, third, but without any penalties.
During the night communication had arrived about the use of the third control unit, out of two allowed, at Leclerc Ferrari and the Ferrari driver was already aware that he had to take 10 penalty positions. With the decision taken before Free Trials 3 came the confirmation of what Leclerc feared most: it would start from the bottom, building a race all over recovery, which would nevertheless give it the opportunity to use components of young and consequently more reliable in Montreal.
