Leclerc lost his first victory by a short circuit in his Ferrari

The 'Scuderia' has discovered what went wrong in the Monegasque's car. "This type of problem has never been seen before," they say in a statement.


A fault in the MGU-H or a combustion problem in a cylinder. Those were the probable causes to which Ferrari pointed out as the culprits that prevented Leclerc from achieving the first victory of his F1 career in Bahrain. However, once the power unit has been studied, in Maranello you already know exactly what went wrong in the Monegasque car: it was an unprecedented short circuit. This is explained by the 'Scuderia' itself through a statement: "After the race, Ferrari technicians and engineers tracked the failure in the car until detected that it was a short circuit in the control unit of the injection system. never had been seen before in the component in question, "says Ferrari.

Charles dominated the grand prize with full authority and was launched for his first triumph just a day after releasing his showcase of poles in the 'Great Circus'. But, suddenly, his SF90 began to lose power and the young Monegasque saw how the Mercedes of Hamilton, first, and that of Bottas, moments later, they advanced without being able to do anything to prevent it. Finally, the 'safety car' prevented the Ferrari driver losing the podium in favor of Verstappen, a bit of luck in the middle of the disappointment.

Furthermore, Ferrari has confirmed that they will be able to reuse the power unit: "Charles Leclerc he will use the same power unit in China that he used for the Bahrain GP. The unit will be duly placed in the 16th car, the same with which the Monegasque driver had to settle for third place when he was leading the race comfortably few laps from the end ".
