One of the major stories heading into the 2021 season is how will Ferrari's engine perform, with Charles Leclerc waiting until qualifying to see how it stacks up to the rest of the grid.
The Scuderia were severely hampered by their power unit in 2020 after the FIA clamped down, resulting in a long campaign for the outfit. However the team are optimistic things will improve this season, with Leclerc noting the car is better in terms of balance and cornering.
"I think in the balance itself and the way it behaves in the different parts of the corner," Leclerc told RacingNews365.com and other members of the media. "So from entry to exit I think it's a bit better and easier to drive, which is nice.
"We've had some positive signs but it is difficult to judge until we put everything on the limit in qualifying."
However Leclerc was quick to avoid any predictions in terms of where Ferrari stack up with their new power unit.
"As I said we'll just have to wait for qualifying," Leclerc added. "We'll see how much of step forward we've taken once we put everything flat out."
