Ferrari confirmed this Tuesday that it will be forced to change the engine of the Monegasque driver Charles Leclerc's single-seater due to the damage suffered after his incident with the Canadian Lance Stroll (Aston Martin) at the Hungarian Grand Prix last Sunday.

"The accident in which Charles Leclerc was an innocent victim shortly after the start of the Hungarian Grand Prix deprived him of the possibility of a great result at the Hungaroring. However, the examination of the 'SF21' carried out this Monday in Maranello revealed that in addition from this, the engine was irreparably damaged and cannot be used again ", indicated the 'Scuderia' on its website.

The Italian team regretted suffering "more blow" both at the team level and for Leclerc himself and stressed that this change "has a financial impact" and also problems for future races since "during the remaining 12 weekends of this season, it is very likely that the team will be forced to install a fourth ICE ('Internal Combustion Engine') in the SF21 of Charles, thus incurring penalties on the grid ".

The damaged engine at the Hungaroring was the second used this season by the Monegasque driver and this change to a third for the Belgian Grand Prix at the end of August will not result in a penalty.
