Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc says rival Formula 1 teams should trust the sport’s governing body with regards to its judgment on their 2019 power unit.
It was revealed on the final day of pre-season testing that the FIA and Ferrari had reached a private settlement over the legality of the marque’s 2019 power unit.
2020欧洲杯体育在线投注It prompted an angry response from seven of the 10 Formula 1 teams – those not powered by Ferrari – who demanded full and proper disclosure.
The FIA swiftly rebuked those teams though accepted it had suspicions over the legality of Ferrari’s power unit, while considering the matter to be closed.
It is understood that a press conference was planned for the Australian Grand Prix prior to the event, and subsequent rounds, being called off amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Mercedes has since distanced itself from the saga while Leclerc, speaking in Australia, said complainants should have faith in the FIA.
“I understand it yes and no,” said Leclerc on the teams who had sent a letter to the FIA.
2020欧洲杯体育在线投注“In a way they should also trust the FIA for doing their work and I think it is completely understandable that they don’t explain absolutely everything because there is a lot of work for us on all the parts.
2020欧洲杯体育在线投注“So if you make all of this public you will make all the work a team has done public and for me that is understandable.”
2020欧洲杯体育在线投注Leclerc added that “I fully trust my team that is for sure and I trust the FIA for making sure everything was okay, so for me it is done and I look to the future.”
