Carlos Sainz won pole position twice in a row and in Singapore he converted first place at the start into his first victory of the season. His Ferrari teammate Charles Leclerc hopes that the high results are not isolated, but become a trend, but this can certainly be confirmed after analyzing the performance in the upcoming Japanese Grand Prix.
“I hope that in Suzuka we can repeat the form we showed in Singapore,” Racingnews365 quotes Charles Leclerc. “I’m really looking forward to the next stage, because if we’re fast again, that’s a good sign for the future.
As I said at Zandvoort we tested a lot and at Monza we wanted to confirm that we now understand the car better. Apparently the team has managed to take a big step forward. The Singapore circuit has historically pleased us, so we have to wait until the next phase to understand whether we have really taken a step forward or whether these were isolated results.
The team knew from the first race of the season that we had an unpredictable car. This meant we had to use conservative balance settings, where the car no longer had any grip on the front wheels on the track.”
