    You have other "gentlemen" drivers driving in older cars and faired nicely through the track. Jacky Ickx drove his 312B2 at this Monaco Grand Prix Historique 2022 and drove it pretty well through the track.
    Leclercs LF brake pad broke up on brake application that sent him into a spin at the Rascasse corner. There are pics showing pieces of the brake pad breaking into pieces.
    It's not how start but how you finish.

    Most outlets are having a field day with the crash, mentioning that Leclerc is an accident-prone driver.

    Yup. It wasn’t driver error. Yet people online want to crucify Leclerc for it.

    That's evidence enough for me. Thank you.

    It's gotta be somewhat expected for Leclerc to catch some for the crash given his history. But it's not fair when people focus only on his crashes, and ignore his successes. I gotta admit, I am kind of that way with Carlos Sainz right now. Rather than expecting him to have a great result, I almost expect the crash more.

    Knowing where we come from, let's be patient. Who saw Ferrari at the top this year? Ok, Mercedes is doing badly, but RB with Verstapen remains super favourite. If Ferrari manages to beat them, it's huge, and for the moment, it's still possible, it's already great, isn't it?

    Well stated Gilles. Schadenfreund from the media was to be expected. Charles knows the truth and will sail past this bs.

    Well, then, you're not being realistic.

    Red Bull are a serious F1 team and have aero innovation because of Newey. They have five titles for a reason. Beating them won't be easy.

    I want Ferrari to win as much as anybody here, but rebuilding an F1 team that hit rock bottom ain't easy. Ferrari were 6th in the championship just two years ago, with a dog of a car, and we went winless for two and half years, so to come into this season and be winning races and near the top every week is a serious accomplishment.

    When it comes to development, it's not how often you do it, it's how effective the updates are. Ferrari have plenty in the pipeline. New floor and defuser for Barcelona, new rear wing for Baku, I'd expect the new rear suspension around Austria or France, and then the MGU-K a little later. Let RBR throw a million updates at their car if they wish.

    And a new range of rear wings to reduce drag, especialy with opened DRS, right from Barcelona (it is urgent to stop the carnage)

    Well , the season is long ,the cars are new ,so a lot can change through the year. Remember how we felt in after Australia and how almost everyone keep telling that things are looking even better for the next races and guest what?? Everything change !! So probably things could be better for us now or it still will be bad and start getting better after the summer break !!! There so many scenarios for this year all with equal possibilities for me . That's why I just wait t9 see how things will unfold through the year!!! Of course I will be quite disappointed if will keep behind the Bull's after our upgrades and I will be excited if we win clearly be being superior to them!!! BUT nevertheless I'll try to be calm and wait for later in the year if thongs start to clear otherwise the top and one team clearly be faster!!!
    FERRARI FOR EVER !!!!!!!

    I'm not sure the team intend to introduce any new rear wing in Barcelona, but Baku and Canada for sure will see the LDW.

    We all wish Ferrari could win every race. For me it’s just the love I have for this Scuderia, but I do get down when we come in 2nd.

    Luckily he didn't get hurt, that could have ended much worse!
    Rest in Peace Leza, you were a true warrior...
