Toto Wolff has slammed Ferrari for letting their fans down after their series of sub standard performances. We all are well aware of the fact the Italian Giants are struggling to get on top of their reliability concerns, which has gone on to cost them valuable points. Ferrari got off to the best possible start this season winning 2 out of the first three races. With Red Bull having their reliability issues earlier, it was seen as Ferrari’s championship to lose.
But, the team from Milton Keynes have bounced back brilliantly to get on top of their issues and the championship. Red Bull has gone on to win 6 on the trot with Max Verstappen sealing the victory in 5 of those 6 races. Despite being second best during qualifying on most occasions, Red Bull has somehow been able to grind out the results.
We are nine races into the season and it’s about time that Ferrari pick up their game or it’ll be too late for them to be able to put any sort of pressure on the championship leaders. It’s pretty clear that Ferrari has the speed to match Red Bull stride for stride, but they can’t afford to have any more DNFs this season. It’s been a topsy-turvy season for them but there is still hope.
Toto Wolff gives Ferrari a reality check ahead of a crucial British GP
Toto Wolff did not hold himself back as he blasted the Italian Giants for their poor run of form. He said, “It would be good if Leclerc played up front. That would be really good for Formula 1, but they [Ferrari] are dropping the ball at the moment.”
“It would be better if the World Championship goes to the end and is not already decided in September.”
But Charles Leclerc is optimistic despite the issues. He said, “I’m not worried. It’s a big gap, but I’m just concentrating on the work and I’m confident that we can win it back. That motivates me more, because of course I know that the pace is in the car.”
“I’m not worried, I’m just extremely motivated to finally have a clean weekend and to show that we are strong.”
Charles Leclerc might be optimistic but Toto Wolff is right when he says that it’s time for Ferrari to up their game or it could be curtains for them pretty quickly, which is not something we want to see.
