Canadian Grand Prix Free Practice 2 :


Ferrari Back On The Pace,

Charles Leclerc Leads FP2 In A Ferrari 1-2

By Harry Schofield:


Just as we thought Mercedes looked comfortable this weekend, Ferrari turned up the pace and Charles Leclerc set the fastest time of the session with a 1:12.17.

Sebastian followed him just 0.074 seconds behind him.


Lewis Hamilton pushing his Mercedes to the limit lost the rear and banged the wall in turn 8/9.


What surprised me is that the rear of the car was badly damaged and Lewis continued to drive it back to the pits causing major damage to the gearbox assembly.


It was confirmed that the complete rear of the car wa to be changed for FP3, but the gearbox was not his race gearbox as initially thought .


This to me raises questions about Lewis, yes he has made a mistake but why risk his car and  potentially a grid penalty if that was his race gearbox, the desire to be n top and pride over takes his thinking .


Max Verstappen brushed the wall of champions with no major issues, but this will be a factor in tomorrows qualifying session, with track temperature set to rise over the next day, the dust and lighter fuel loads will see many more of the same.


Williams again are struggling this weekends at the bottom of the time sheets a good 3 seconds of the pace.
