Leclerc kreeg tijdens de derde vrije training voor de Grand Prix van Amerika met een olielek te maken en moest daardoor de rest van het weekend met een oudere specificatie van de motor volbrengen. Hij had zodoende minder vermogen en kwam niet verder dan de vierde plek in de race. Ferrari had in theorie de optie om de krachtbron met het olielek te repareren, maar in de week voor de Braziliaanse GP liet teambaas Mattia Binotto weten dat de beschadigde unit vervangen wordt.Omdat het de eerste keer is dat Leclerc de drie toegewezen ICE's overschrijdt, krijgt hij een gridstraf van tien posities. Bij verdere inzet van nieuwe exemplaren volgt een straf van vijf plekken, al zal dat met nog twee races te gaan niet nodig zijn.

Or if you were up late last night and know you have a big night out tonight and you REALLY gotta conserve energy, you do the bed nap. I know a lot of people who can’t do bed naps because they’ll just go lights out at 2 p.m. and wake up at 4 a.m., but I don’t have that problem. I take to the bed when I know I HAVE to sleep because I’ve got a RAGING PARTY to go rage at. And if I can’t … [Read more...] about Bed Naps Or Couch Naps: WHO YA GOT?!
