Charles Leclerc will start today’s race from the pit lane after Ferrari chose to replace his gearbox ahead of the Spanish GP today.
Ferrari’s Jock Clear: “We’ve taken the opportunity to change the gearbox, that’s effectively all the backend, really to make sure there’s nothing on there that is not right.”
After qualifying Saturday Leclerc said, “I basically had zero rear grip. The car was extremely oversteery and unpredictable.
“The car would be okay and suddenly it would snap away. It was something to do with the rear right corner.
“At first I thought it was something to do with my first set of tires, so we changed for a new set, but there was still this very strange behavior from the rear tires.
