Carlos Sainz ‘eats’ Leclerc and is already the best Ferrari driver
However, if that’s the case, Ferrari has a problem, because in the last five races, those that coincide with this half of the 22-round calendarSainz made a great acceleration with which he matched the forces of the team. Spanish is only 15 dots de Leclerc, already eating ground and casting doubt, at least in the data, on whether the Italian team should focus solely on Charles. Sainz is coming back strong and since Silverstone there is a clear improvement from Carlos and a fall from the Monegasque.

If Sainz is now 15 points behind Leclerc, it’s because the rents that the Monegasque received during the first races, the worst for Sainz and where Leclerc was really good. In the top five – Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Emilia-Romagna and Spain – the Spaniard has always been behind. Since then, the tables have turned and above all the turning point was at Silverstone.
Leclerc started the season as a fine opposition to Verstappen and even He came for 46 points from the Dutchman after the first three races of the World Championship. From then on, the current (and next) Formula 1 champion pulled out the hammer and signed eight victories in 11 tests and did not give up a chance, but far from following him, the leader Ferrari sank in the classification, before looks more in the general classification behind, in Sainz, than in frontalso surpassed by ‘Checo’ Pérez.
And all this when The Italian Grand Prix at Monza is approaching, a weekend of indisputable Ferrari fervor. The Dutch GP at Verstappen (this Sunday, September 4) is still between the two, but the race in Italy will be decisive. Two months ago, when Sainz began to overtake Leclerc, many tiffosis “threatened” the Spaniard with a whistle if he did not conform to what they wanted him to be: a second who was dedicated to help Leclerc. However, now things have changed and maybe all those ferraristas They will have to admit that Sainz goes up and Leclerc goes down and that it is possible that the good options of the team go through the Spaniards.
