MONTREAL – Charles Leclerc spoke at the Canadian Grand Prix after his retirement in the second quartereleventh date of the season formula 1. The Monegasque heavily criticized the team’s decisions in qualifying, which resulted in his being ruled out of the final stage of the day. “It honestly wasn’t hard to tell that the track was dry. I said it. Unfortunately, I don’t know why we went out on the dry track with the intermediates and in the rain with the slicks. We’re making life much harder for ourselves, it should be an easy session. I disagree with the team“.
Leclerc asked earlier in the second quarter if he could fit the soft tires but the team told him to try the intermediates. The tire change happened just before it started raining, so Charles had to drive back to mount the intermediates, although his only attempt failed. Sainz, who will start eighth, was also disappointing: “It was a tough day psychologically – agreed Sky Sports -. After the hit in FP3 I didn’t want it to crash again in qualifying. I did some good laps even if I wasn’t 100%. “In Q3 we had some bad luck with the red flag.”.
