Leclerc unsure why Ferrari losing out to rivals in DRS zones

Ferrari are looking to bounce back following a disappointing showing in France. Charles Leclerc will start Sunday's race seventh on the grid, but there are some things the Scuderia have to work out before the lights turn green.

Charles Leclerc was happy with the lap he put together to qualify seventh for the Styrian Grand Prix, though the Monegasque driver pointed out that the Scuderia are losing out to their competitors though the DRS zones.

Ferrari trail rivals McLaren in the Constructors' Championship, and they'll have a fight on their hand if they want to outscore them on Sunday given Lando Norris starts on the second row. The gap between the two stood at over 0.3s, and Leclerc says the Scuderia are losing out when opening up the DRS.

“I’m happy about my lap, actually very happy with my lap,” Leclerc told RacingNews365.com and other members of the media. “I put everything together. I did a good lap. I didn’t do any mistakes and put all of my best corners in one lap.

“On the other hand, when I’m looking at the gap in between myself and Lando, it is quite… I wouldn’t go as far as ‘scary’, but it’s quite a bit. We need to work hard for tomorrow."

“We are losing quite a bit in the first sector, which is mainly the three DRS zones, for some reason. We don’t completely understand why yet because it’s mostly where we are opening the DRS and the others seem to be a lot stronger with the DRS on. So it’s not in all the straights, it’s mostly in those three straights."

Leclerc struggled with the front of his car during the French Grand Prix, with Ferrari's tyre wear ultimately resulting him finishing 16th, however the Monegasque driver says things have improved this weekend.

"This weekend I'm struggling a bit less than in France," Leclerc added. "That was my problem [the front end] in Paul Ricard. We made some changes that helped me here.

"I think our race pace was better than qualifying pace this weekend, which is quite unusual. Sometimes we haven't carried the pace we had on Friday to the race on Sunday, so we really need to make sure we work well tonight, try to prepare in the best way possible for tomorrow and have a good race."
