Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc spoke about another mistake of the team during the qualifying of the Belgian Grand Prix.
During the third qualifying segment, Leclerc was released onto the track on a fresh set of soft, although initially, apparently, it was planned that Charles would try on old tires, perhaps to help his partner, Carlos Sainz, with a slipstream.
Charles Leclerc: «I think there was a misunderstanding, but it didn't really matter. But obviously I said it on the radio because I was surprised. But that doesn't change anything about this weekend's issue. Am I disappointed because of this mistake? No».
Ferrari's sporting director Laurent Mekis said after qualifying that it wasn't a mistake, it was just a last-minute decision.
