F1 2022: Leclerc’s engine, KO and suffering

MIt’s bad news for Charles Leclerc. Ferrari confirmed that Buck engine, who said enough when fighting for victory with Verstappen “Exceeds the ability to repair”, thus losing a unit ahead of schedule, “The reality is that things in this department are not very good for me,” says Monegasque in Montreal, minutes before the start of the first practice session.

Article 28.2a states that “No pilot can use more than 3 engines (ICE), 3 MGU-H, 3 turbochargers (TC), 2 batteries (ES), 2 electronic control units (EC), 3 MGU-K and 8 of the 4 components. for vehicle exhaust. If Leclerc goes up on the third ice, he will already be at the limit when we touch a third of the championship and if he ties it to the fourth turbo directly, it will hit a 10 places penalty on the grid.
