F1, Ferrari: Charles Leclerc grappling with another headache
Monegasque slowed in FP2 by digital instrumentation problem
FP2 with two faces, at Silverstone, for the Ferraris: if Carlos Sainz closed with a smile thanks to a time of 1:28.942 that allowed him to finish the session ahead of everyone, Charles Leclerc, on the other hand, had to deal with yet another headache in a still complex period.
During the free practice session at the British circuit, in fact, Leclerc had to deal with a problem with the electronic instrumentation, specifically the digital dashboard of his Ferrari, which gave him erroneous data just when he was supposed to launch himself on the track with soft tires.
Leclerc therefore had to settle for the fifth fastest time, 462 thousandths slower than his teammate. Also ahead of him were Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes), who set the second fastest time, Lando Norris (McLaren), third, and Max Verstappen (Red Bull), fourth.
