The rare Ferrari problem that made its Saudi GP harder against Red Bull's might

Another Formula 1 race, another dominant Red Bull display… while its superiority over the chasing pack isn’t in question, a rather different problem held back Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc during the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix which, if solved, could hint at a closer fight at the front in the coming races

“If I look back at the last six, seven months, we are the team that have improved the most,” Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc said after finishing third behind dominant winner Max Verstappen and his Red Bull team-mate Sergio Perez in Formula 1’s 2024 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix.

“We are slowly closing the gap. The gap is still quite big. But if we keep working like that, I'm sure it's a matter of time before we put Red Bull under a bit more pressure.”
