Leclerc: Because of the tires, I’m willing to drive less aggressively
Ferrari racer Charles Leclerc has stated that he is ready to change his racing style and drive less aggressively, insofar as this will help him solve tire overheating problems.
In the last race in Hungary, Leclerc faced extensive wear and tear on Pirelli’s tires and was forced to leave third place to his teammate Sebastian Vettel at the end of the race.
Monasque is determined to resolve tire problems as soon as possible:
In Hungary, I had major problems with the wear of the rear tires, which completely failed. Sebastian has far fewer problems with degradation, and obviously there is something he is doing better than I am. I suspect that my problems are related to the fact that I drive too aggressively in races. The whole situation needs to be analyzed and I’m also ready to change my driving style if necessary.
