The Belgian Formula 1 Grand Prix also proved bitter for Ferrari . The nightmare World Championship of the Reds continues, which also did not leave their mark on the Spa track with Vettel 13th and Leclerc 14th. The latter, frustrated by the performance of his car and during a pit stop, let himself go to a real vent, with some insult in French after forgetting to turn off the microphones. An episode that underlines the nervousness of a driver who achieved an exceptional victory on this track last season. An apology arrived on Twitter in the evening.
Leclerc, outburst against the Ferrari box in the radio team at the Belgian Formula 1 Grand Prix
A day to forget for Charles Leclerc at Spa. The Monegasque driver had a good start in the Belgian Grand Prix, but due to technical problems he slipped back without being able to return at least to the top ten positions, closing behind even his teammate Vettel . Bad day for Ferrari, which once again highlighted the difficulties of keeping up with the teams fighting for the World Championship. As if that were not enough then Leclerc also ended up at the center of an investigation by the commissioners for the too low speed in the laps before the start. Nervousness to the stars for the young talent who became the protagonist of an outburst during a pit stop.
What Charles Leclerc said in the radio team and what “putain de sa race” means
Called back by his mechanics in the garage, Charles Leclerc didn’t realize he had the microphone open and let himself go to a few words too many. There was no shortage of insults in French for the driver, such as ” putain de sa race ” or literally “son of a bitch you and your race”. Heavy words were those of Leclerc in the radio team, a real outburst against his “corner” and the son of a frustrating situation, namely that of not being able to compete for the World Championship by virtue of a car clearly inferior to the others. A situation that created not a little embarrassment at Ferrari, and on which the driver returned after the race with these words to the microphones of Sky: “I did not hide my frustration with the garage for two too slow pit stops and for how we struggle to overtake. “
