Charles Leclerc is disappointed that the FIA’s actions to get rid of porpoising level out Ferrari’s efforts.

The FIA’s recent technical directive aimed at fighting porpoising got different reactions from drivers. Max Verstappen was not happy with the fact that rules were changed in the middle of the season, while George Russell criticized that point of view.

Leclerc was also not delighted with the changes as they would make Ferrari’s efforts pointless.

“On the one hand, I obviously understand George’s point, because when you see him and Lewis get out of their car after Baku, it’s very bad,” he said.

“You can feel probably the pain that Lewis is going through at the moment. And this is not acceptable.

“But, on the other hand, also, you cannot underestimate the amount of work that’s been done in the last few months by teams to actually get on top of those issues. This has been our main priority since the first time we tried these cars.

“We’ve been working to get on top of those issues. I think the improvement has been massive, and now all of the work that we’ve done, [do we] just put it in the bin because obviously there’s maybe one team that is struggling more than others.

“This is my point of view. I obviously understand that on Mercedes it’s very bad, but I also think that there are maybe fixes for this.”
