Charles Leclerc will end the Italian GP race weekend with the power unit he has started it.

Why it matters: The Monegasque had issues with engine braking on Friday, so Ferrari decided to put another power unit in the no.16 car.


  • Ferrari has confirmed that the problem was resolved.
  • Leclerc will avoid grid penalty as power units are of the same specification.

What they had to say:

  • “The problem with the electronic management of the engine braking on Charles’ car that led to his PU being changed after Friday’s sessions, as a precaution, has now been fixed,” Ferrari statement read.
  • “Therefore the original PU has now been put back in his car for the race.”
