The risk in Leclerc’s Ferrari F1 engineer swap

OPINION: Ferrari heads to its first home race at Imola with high hopes for its first big upgrade of 2024. But it’s not the only change the team has made since Miami, with one major difference for Charles Leclerc all about transforming his season too

Ferrari is facing much difference for its first home Formula 1 race of the 2024 season – the returning Emilia Romagna Grand Prix. The SF-24 is set for its first major upgrade at Imola, following the early unveiling of its various changes in a filming day/FIA spray guards test at Ferrari’s Fiorano circuit.

Given what McLaren achieved following its own first development twist last time out in Miami, the pressure is on Ferrari in the battle to close on Red Bull. But there’s a smaller change occurring at the same time – one that can also mean the difference between winning and losing.
