Marc Gené blows everyone away

Marc Gené, speaking during a live broadcast on the ‘SoyMotor’ Twitch channel, displaced everyone by talking about Ferrari’s season, declaring himself optimistic about the car’s potential and the results that Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz can achieve between now and the end of the season.

“There is no specific problem, in Ferrari there is no concern about tire degradation, beyond what happened at Silverstone,” said the Spanish driver and commentator, the Cavallino’s ‘brand ambassador.’ In Canada and Austria it went well, at Silverstone a little less so but I think the problems related to set-up and tires have been solved.

“In Hungary you can aim for a very good result, there is a chance to do good races and get on the podium as many times as possible. The Hungaroring is a particular track, it could be suitable for Ferrari: in any case I see that the races are approached with a different mentality, the car has no real weak points.”

Marc Gené, born in 1974, raced in Formula 1 for two full seasons at Minardi (1999 and 2000) and three races overall at Williams (Monza 2003, Magny Cours and Silverstone 2004). His best result with the old team from Faenza was sixth place in the 1999 European GP, while with Williams he managed to get a fifth place just in the 2003 Italian GP. He has also participated in eight editions of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, winning the 2009 one at the wheel of the Peugeot 908, with David Brabham and Alexander Wurz joining him as co-drivers.
