Ferrari praise drivers’ approach to issues

Ferrari racing director Laurent Mekies indicated the ability of both their drivers to make a “reset” after having faced problems.

Ferrari had difficulties in the first half of the season. Reliability problems, driver errors, and controversial strategy calls did not allow the Maranello-based outfit to convert the performance of their car into consistently good results.

Mekies revealed how both Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz react to the challenges.

“With both these guys, we have had very good highs and we have had very painful lows this season,” he said.

“And in both ways, in both directions, when they come back to the garage, when they have looked at what happened, when they have looked at the data, they are able to reset, to be in the learning mode pretty much after 15 minutes.

“So you need to separate that from maybe what you can hear on the radio in the heat of the moment when they are racing with a high heart rate. I think it’s two different things.

“But when they get out of the car and they analyze everything, after an hour they will be back into the analysis mode and showing little emotion in a negative way, no negative emotions but instead you can see it drives them to even more motivation.”
