Charles Leclerc in “pole position” for the title

The Ferrari boss also expressed his support for the two Scuderia drivers, the Spaniard Carlos Sainz and the Monegasque Charles Leclerc, « without doubt the best driver duo in Formula 1 », according to him. According to John Erkann, Charles Leclerc, currently 2nd in the drivers’ standings behind Max Verstappen, is in « pole position » to finally win the title that Ferrari has been leaking since that of Finn Kimi Raikkonen in 2007.

This season, the Monegasque is 109 points behind the Dutchman before the Italian Grand Prix. However, he could reduce his delay on Sunday on the leader on a circuit where Verstappen has never won.

Carlos Sainz and Leclerc managed the first and third times of the 2nd free practice session on Friday. The Dutchman came between the two Ferrari drivers, but will start on the grid on Sunday with a five-place penalty.
