Ferrari is currently struggling to keep pace with Mercedes and Red Bull. Moreover, they are gradually falling behind Aston Martin as well. However, in Montreal, they saw a glimmer of hope, as both Ferrari drivers, Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz finished inside the top 5. The Team Principal of Ferrari, Frederic Vasseur, recently talked about their approach going forward.
In Montreal, Leclerc and Sainz finished in P4 and P5, respectively. It was a great result, particularly for Ferrari. Currently, they are in 4th place behind Red Bull, Mercedes, and Aston Martin. After a great result at the Canadian GP, Ferrari will be hoping to finish 3rd in the constructor’s championship, which could be a great boost for them in the 2024 season.
In a recent interview, Vasseur said that Sainz and Leclerc were “traveling at Verstappen’s pace" at the Canadian GP, which was certainly a big positive for Scuderia. However, Vasseur and Leclerc are still cautious about their approach for the next phase. Vasseur further said, “The next stages will tell us a lot about the state of affairs.”
Vasseur recently said, “Our main focus has been on ensuring that our drivers can get the most out of the SF-23 package, as indeed they were able to do in the race in Montreal… We’re looking to have a straightforward weekend all the way through from Friday to Sunday and if we manage it, then I’m sure we can bring home a good result.”
