F1: Leclerc’s Bahrain Power Unit deemed ok

Fred Vasseur has confirmed that the engine Charles Leclerc used in Bahrain when it died and he pulled out of the race is OK and still in his pool of three for the year.

Before a wheel had even been turned at the 2023 Bahrain Grand Prix, Leclerc was already delving into his allocation for a new energy store after the team had concerns with the one run during practice.

“We were quite confident about the outcome of the issue in Bahrain but we didn’t want to take any risk,” he told Sky Sports F1 ahead of the race. “We’ll use the engine one a bit later into the season.

“But it was just a matter of having a clean weekend this weekend. So no concerns over the ones that are in there for this weekend. We are always concerned about everything but not especially about the engine.”
