TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc will start from the very end of the race Canadian Formula 1, local time on Sunday. He received an additional penalty on Saturday for exceeding the power unit allowance.
The penalty was a blow to the Monegasque driver in his title race against Red Bull’s Max Verstappen, who was fastest in two practice sessions in Montreal on Friday.
The international motoring federation FIA, as reported by Reuters on Saturday, said Ferrari used four ignition engines (Combustion engine), an excess of the allowable allowance in a season.
Charles Leclerc had also used one more electronic drive than allowed in Friday’s practice session, penalizing him 10 positions back for the first foul.
Ferrari also used an additional turbocharger, the fourth time Leclerc used it when only three were allowed to be used without penalty. The team also committed another infraction for using an additional motor-generator.
Leclerc failed to finish due to power unit issues in two of the last three races he had run while leading the race. In fact, he demonstrated Ferrari’s potential speed by capturing every pole position in the last four races.
As a result, Leclerc has dipped from the race for the top of the Formula 1 standings after the last three races to third place, 34 points behind Red Bull driver Max Verstappen who holds the reins of the standings after eight races.
In addition to Leclerc picking up a penalty, Yuki Tsunoda will also start from behind after the AlphaTauri team ships new elements for the Japanese driver’s power unit, in addition to additional energy storage devices and electronic controls.
