Charles Leclerc still believes Ferrari can win the Championship fight from Red Bull, considering they solve the reliability issues. With more 13 races on the chart, it is very much possible for the Italian team to bring the glory back in Maranello, beating their decade-old rival Red Bull with a head-to-head fight. 

Red Bull after the first three races was 49 points behind the Italian powerhouse but has now turned all the tables after winning 6 continuous races, helped by the DNF the Red team suffered from because of their reliability issues. Red Bull snatched the title from the hands of Ferrari in 2010 and 12, with Sebastian Vettel as their golden boy who won 4 titles in a row. Ferrari came back in 2022 to settle its score with the drinks company but seems to fail at it again.

After going through some disastrous races later this season, Ferrari seems to spark the hopes for the title after marking more pace over their rival on the Montreal circuit. Though Max Verstappen won his fifth race of the season and his first Canadian GP, Ferrari of Carlos Sainz managed to put an intense load of pressure over Max and Red Bull but failed to win it. 

Charles Leclerc on the other hand started P19 after replacing his engine as he suffered 2 DNF in the last three, from the lead of the race, finished P5 managing damage limitations. Max early talked about not easing on the championship as he himself managed to cover a 46 points lead and now created a 46 points lead for himself, knows the sport could see a change very quickly. 

Red Bull is now 76 points ahead of Ferrari on the way to winning their first constructor championship after 2013, but that could still be affected with no reliability.
