Red Bull expects Ferrari to bounce right back
Red Bull expects Ferrari to come right back at them at this weekends Canadian Grand Prix after their damaging double DNF in Azerbaijan.
After a damaging double DNF in Azerbaijan Red Bull expects Ferrari to come back fighting after dropping 80 points to them in the constructors championship.
The constructors is not the only thing that has been affected as Charles Leclerc see his early lead drivers championship take a full 180 degree turn. After being ahead in the championship during the first four rounds Max Verstappen now has a 34 point advantage over the Monegasque driver with Verstappens teammate Sergio Perez sat in between them.
The even more worrying part for Ferrari and Leclerc is that at some point in the season they will hit engine penalties after Leclerc has already seen two of his turbos blown up and possibly reverting back to his underpowered first turbo. As well as the turbos he has also seen an ICE and MGU-H destoryed.
Red Bull team principal Christian Horner says that his team cannot make any mistakes or take their foot of the pedal as one small mistake can see Ferrari right back with them again. Talking to motorsport.com he said “They will sort their problems out. I've got no doubts about that. But inevitably, I guess it means that there'll be penalties further down the year in the back end of the year.
“Of course, there is a long, long way for this championship to play out. We've seen big swings in points over the last four or five races, and it just shows how quickly things can turn around.”
